In this case, it looks like it is because you have limited the access to
POST, PUT, GET and PROPFIND. You should also have one for REPORT and OPTIONS
(they can be grouped with GET and PROPFIND).

There can be other reasons for 403 -- incorrect password, incorrect
configuration file that results in apache not knowing about the access etc.
If the issue persists, my suggestion will be to start off with very basic
authentication for everyone and then add the userfile, then the groupfile
etc. If you have everything in place and if you get the error, any one of
them could be the problem. So, try doing it one step at a time.

Hope this helps.
