I had already checked that the server-directory is writable, by
uploading a file via a small client-side python utility :)

However, my query is regarding what is the most recommended way to
achieve this? :)

In particular, is it possible to get the uploading done, using a
web-browser as the only client-side utility? (as that will do away
with any needs of deploying any "special" client-side utility).

On some googling, I find that invoking a PHP-based-server-side-script
from a HTML "Upload"-Form might do the job, but I am not sure if using
PHP with "httpd" is recommended, as "mod_dav" already seems to do the
server-side job.

Just a few starting-pointers on how to accomplish an  "exclusive
server-side solution, using only a browser at the client" will be
greatly helpful :) :)

Thanks again for the reply John !!
