How to disable file restriction server side?

I know it is not safe but could someone let me know how to disable file name restrictions for syncing?

I know how to do it client side but not sure what to do server side.

I really need to sync my .htaccess files

thanks a million in advance

My config:
Apache 2.4.x

There is one reference in the code for that (perhaps other as well):

Make sure that you don’t let apache override its configuration within your data subfolders (the data folder itself is protected by a .htaccess, you could put this protection in your apache config directly and turning AllowOverride to None.

sudo grep -r ‘blacklisted_files’ /var/www/nextcloud

/var/www/nextcloud/apps/files/lib/Capabilities.php: ‘blacklisted_files’ => $this->config->getSystemValue(‘blacklisted_files’, [’.htaccess’]),

/var/www/nextcloud/lib/private/Files/Filesystem.php: $blacklist = \OC::$server->getConfig()->getSystemValue(‘blacklisted_files’, array(’.htaccess’));

/var/www/nextcloud/config/config.sample.php:‘blacklisted_files’ => array(’.htaccess’),

I replaced all occurences in those files from ‘.htaccess’ to ‘.htaccessBAK’. lets see, now I need to enable the client

I needed the answer too. Thanks for reply.

looks like it is working; still not working on symbolic links; anyone has any idea for those ?
