It is difficult to determine what is accessing Apache here.  You do know
that it is running on host  Do you know what host that
is, and what activities happen on it?  One way to determine that is to
run a command like "while sleep 0.1 ; do ( date ; netstat --inet -p
)>>/tmp/log ; done" as root on that host.  It will capture a detailed
list of all processes that are making TCP connections.  Then check this
list against the Apache log to see what program is connecting to Apache.

Given the line "DAV/2 configured", it appears that Apache is configured
to support DAV.  That means that a DAV client might be attempting to
access the server.  If you disable DAV in the Apache configuration and
the error does *not* appear, that suggests the problem is due to some
DAV client attempting to perform some operation.

But better would be to examine the Apache logs to determine exactly what
the request was.  If the logs do not contain enough information, you
should tell Apache to log more verbosely.
