Remove the <limit POST> and </limit> lines, unless you want to ALLOW the
other methods (GET PUT DELETE, etc).

Why is AllowOverrid set to "none"?  As you just mentioned, the FAQ says it
needs to be set to "all" or at least "authconfig".

Another thing to mention is that it is not necessary to use .htaccess at
all.  You can just take the auth stuff from above (without the <limit>
crap) and include it directly in the <directory> section.
