Apache24 and WebDaV

I am transferring an existing WebDaV site running under Apache22 on
CentOS to a FreeBSD-11 jail running Apache24.  I have transferred the
Apache22 configuration file for this service to the Apache24 site and
altered it to handle the changes in Apache24.

The service starts on the jail without error and I can attempt to
connect to it from the Mate desktop file browser on my workstation. 
But I keep getting the error : Not a WebDAV enabled share.

I have searched for this error and found a discussion that says point
blank that WebDAV is broken on Apache24.  I cannot believe this is
true but I applied the suggested fix to the WebDaV directory
configuration in Apache24 (add DirectoryIndex disabled). This changed

Does anyone here have a working WebDaV configuration for Apache24 that
they could share with me so I can compare and discover if I have
missed some obscure setting; or an Apache24 change thereto?
