Hi Brian,

when attempting to HTTPS POST us the file to the folder which has been setup.

I think there may be some confusion as to precisely what you require.  It
sounds to me like you're looking for "PUT" support, not "POST".  PUT is
used for uploading files, POST is used for submitting forms.

Your hosting provider is correct in that nothing special is required to
support POST, but you certainly do need a script configured to handle PUT
requests - this is accomplished using the 'Script' directive in httpd.conf

Hope that helps,
