You either have to add a module which provides DELETE, or mod_dav.  You seem
to ignore his answer; Joshua explicitly told you that Apache httpd alone doesn't
support any DELETE or PUT style content-modification methods.  You can ask the
same question a half dozen ways hoping we wave some magic wand, but the code
to delete or replace a file just doesn't exist here."

LOL! That's a nice, clear, blunt response softened with a touch of humour. My
stupidity for understanding version numbers has been exposed, and I've been well
put in my place regarding DELETE.

I shall have a crack at implementing DAV then.

Thanks to Joshua and yourself for clearing this up.
