Re: HTTP 501 Not Implemented
Contact your web server.
Your Web server does not understand or does not support the HTTP method it
finds in the HTTP data stream sent to it by the client (e.g. a Web browser
or our CheckUpDown robot). The methods defined by the HTTP protocol are as
a.. OPTIONS: Find out the communication options available for a particular
URL resource. Allows the client to determine the options and/or requirements
associated with a resource, or the capabilities of a server, without a
specific action involving transfer of data.
b.. GET: Retrieve the information identified by the URL resource e.g. GET
a particular Web page or image. The most common method by far.
c.. HEAD: Identical to GET except that the server returns header
information only, not the actual information identified by the URL resource.
Useful to obtain metainformation about the entity implied by the request
without transferring the entity-body itself. Often used to test hypertext
links for validity, accessibility, and recent modification.
d.. POST: Submit data to the Web server such as 1) post a message to a
bulletin board, newsgroup or mailing list, 2) provide input data - typically
from a CGI form - to a data-handling process, 3) add a record directly to a
e.. PUT: Set (place/replace) the data for a particular URL to the new data
submitted by the client. For example, upload a new Web page to a server.
f.. DELETE: Remove the data associated with the URL resource. For example,
delete a Web page.
g.. TRACE: Run a remote, application-layer loop-back of the request
message. Effectively a 'ping' which tests what data the Web server is
receiving from the client.
h.. CONNECT: Reserved for use with tunnelling (e.g. SSL) via a proxy
server. This method is defined only for HTTP version 1.1, not the earlier
