I suggest you use the curl-library mailing list for libcurl programming

I also suggest that you start with using the curl command line tool and make
sure that can PUT a file first, until you know you have your server-side setup

... use -v and/or --trace and --trace-ascii to see exactly what is sent and
received. If needed, post the info to a curl list and we might be able to help
out further.

This list is for the curl tool, not for configuring apache. You'll get a lot
better responses on these questions on an apache-related mailing list I'm
