Thanks for the fast answer. I might add additional handlers later and  
have to remove them in each web dav folder individually. If I
forget this I get some insecure server. This is sub-optimal.

Is there an easy solution to have some standard apache server  
(including php and all the other features, additional handlers etc) and
use this server with WebDAV, too?

I tried to enable WebDAV only for sub-directories, but this was not  
successful (perhaps because the WebDAV client = MS Windows
Explorer tries to access the root using WebDAV, too).

The WebDAV folders should be accessible by DAV (of course) and one  
should be able to download files using a browser. The browser mode
should be save (no execution of anything) and just allow simple file  
download (something like "RemoveAllHandlers").

If this is not possible on a per-directory basis, I would like to have  
a secure file server only (that means DAV enabled and "safe"
browser-mode for downloads without WebDAV client).
