Enable PUT requests in Apache

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • How "PUT requests" can be enabled on apache.
  • How can I check whether PUT requests are enabled or disabled.
  • When PUT requests are restricted, you should get the following HTML in return after attempting a PUT:

    <HTML><HEAD>
    <TITLE>ERROR: The requested URL could not be retrieved</TITLE>
    </HEAD><BODY>
    <H1>ERROR</H1>
    <H2>The requested URL could not be retrieved</H2>
    <HR>
    <P>
    While trying to retrieve the requested URL the following error was encountered:
    <UL>
    <LI>
    <STRONG>
    Unsupported Request Method and Protocol
    </STRONG>
    </UL>
    

            


    Footprint does not support all request methods for all access protocols.
