405

Method Not Allowed

 
  Description  
     
 

A form entry is not allowed for this page. For example, the page requests an email address and you select submit, but the 405 error occurs.

This can be caused by a cached page on your browser that has some form, but the web server has since changed and no longer has that form.

 
 
   
  Examples  
     
 
Windows
Server Error

405 - HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed.

The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method (HTTP verb) was used to attempt access.

Apache
Method Not Allowed
