You do not even need full-blown WebDAV support, enabling HTTP PUT for 
some directory is sufficient. You will want to restrict write access 
using basic authorization:

         Alias /vmmaker /path/to/repository
         <Directory /path/to/repository >
             PUT_EnablePut On
             PUT_EnableDelete Off
             PUT_DirMask 777
             AuthType Basic
             AuthName vmmaker
             AuthUserFile /path/to/.htpasswd
             <Limit PUT>
                    require valid-user
             Options +Indexes
