405 Method Not Allowed

Estimated reading: 1 minute 1118 views

This error indicates that the method used to access a resource is not allowed. This is typically due to the file that the user is requesting doesn’t support the current method.

If the user encounters this error they should verify that the file, or resource, they are using supports the current user client. If additional troubleshooting is needed then the user should contact server support.

The HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) 405 Method Not Allowed response status code indicates that the server knows the request method, but the target resource doesn’t support this method.

The server must generate an Allow header field in a 405 status code response. The field must contain a list of methods that the target resource currently supports.
