I have written a site that uses ASP.NET MVC Web API and everything is working nicely until I put it on the staging server. The site works fine on my local machine and on the dev web server. Both dev and staging servers are Windows Server 2008 R2.
The problem is this: basically the site works, but there are some API calls that use the HTTP PUT method. These fail on staging returning a 404, but work fine elsewhere.
The first problem that I came across and fixed was in Request Filtering. But still getting the 404.
I have turned on tracing in IIS and get the following problem.
168. -MODULE_SET_RESPONSE_ERROR_STATUS ModuleName IIS Web Core Notification 16 HttpStatus 404 HttpReason Not Found HttpSubStatus 0 ErrorCode 2147942402 ConfigExceptionInfo Notification MAP_REQUEST_HANDLER ErrorCode The system cannot find the file specified. (0x80070002)
The configs are the same on dev and staging, matter of fact the whole site is a direct copy.
Why would the GETs and POSTs work, but not the PUTs?
For those of you who do not have WebDAV enabled but are still running into this issue using MVC 4's Web API's...
Steve Michelotti documented a solution that worked for me here.
At the end of the day, I enabled all verbs (verb="*") to the ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0 handler in my web config.
<system.webServer> <validation validateIntegratedModeConfiguration="false" /> <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true" /> <handlers> <remove name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0" /> <add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0" path="*." verb="*" type="System.Web.Handlers.TransferRequestHandler" resourceType="Unspecified" requireAccess="Script" preCondition="integratedMode,runtimeVersionv4.0" /> </handlers> </system.webServer>
Those IIS servers have web-dav module installed on them and i bet it is not needed and it was installed because the person installing ticked all boxes.
Just remove web-dav from iis.
Alternatively use web.config to remove web dav module:
<system.webServer> <modules> <remove name="WebDAVModule" /> </modules> ...
It seems there are a number of reasons that this occurs. None of the above quite worked for me. I already had the ExtensionlessUrlHandler settings in web.config with all the required HTTP verbs. In the end I had to make the following changes in IIS:
Okwhere required and answer
Edit Script Mapdialog that pops up.
Hope this helps somebody :)
My hosting provider could NOT uninstall WebDAV as this would affect everyone.
This, runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true" , worked but was not recommended.
Many fixes included removing the module for WebDAVModule but that still didn't work. I removed the handler also, and finally I could use all verbs POST GET PUT DELETE.
Remove WebDAVModule and WebDAV in modules and handlers.
<modules> <remove name="WebDAVModule" /> </modules> <handlers> <remove name="WebDAV" /> </handlers>
In my case, none of these solutions applied.
I fixed it by changing my app pool to Integrated instead of Classic.
<add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0" path="*." verb="*" type="System.Web.Handlers.TransferRequestHandler" preCondition="integratedMode,runtimeVersionv4.0" />
is not going to work with a Classic app pool, since its
Rick Strahl from West-Wind recommended the following:
< handlers> < remove name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0"/> < add name="ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0" path="*." verb="GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG,PUT,DELETE,PATCH,OPTIONS" type="System.Web.Handlers.TransferRequestHandler" preCondition="integratedMode,runtimeVersionv4.0" /> < /handlers>Which Worked very well for me.
Hi For me none of the solutions worked. I finally got it working doing this :
1) In IIS select you application.
2) Go to Request Filtering
3) Then select the HTTP Verbs tab
4) I found the PUT and other verbs to have allowed to false but wasn't able to just edit so I removed the verb then either in the pane on the right select allow verb or right click on the list and select it. Enter the verb you're having troubles with and voilà !
Hope this will help someone !
