    LiteSpeed block access to request URI containing "/.ht..." and "/.svn...". that's why you get blocked.
    Maybe we only need to block "GET", "HEAD" request, and let it pass for other WebDAV requests.

    We will update 3.3.5 release with this fix soon.

    what is somone simulate WebDAV request?

    Maby we need some setting to turn this files from some locations?

    Maby if request is redirected to proxy you shoulden check URI contaning .ht... ?

    Correct me if I were wrong, WebDAV requests won't show the content of the file.
    Actually, only "GET" request could expose the file content.
    WebDAV requests usually require authentication, so it is not likely a security problem.
