I wrote REST service using ASP.NET Web API. I’m trying to send HttpDelete request, however I get the following error:
405 - HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed
I think I’m close to the solution, I found out that I should enable IIS remote management , go to Handler Mappings section and add DELETE verb to the appropriate position… but the problem is that there is a lots of different positions on the list… (sth like here: http://www.somacon.com/p126.php).
Which one should I edit? Few of them don’t have extension, e.g. “ExtensionUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0” and I added DELETE verb to it, but it still doesn’t work…
It was just a shot in the dark to modify that one, so should I modify different position? If so, which one? Or maybe is there anything more what I should do?
The same web service work perfectly fine on my local service, so I guess the problem is with the remote IIS…
Common cause for this error is WebDAV. Make sure you uninstall it.
You don’t need to uninstall WebDAV, just add these lines to the web.config:
<system.webServer> <modules> <remove name="WebDAVModule" /> </modules> <handlers> <remove name="WebDAV" /> </handlers> </system.webServer>
