HTTP 405 error

When I go to website http://courts.countyofventura.org/venturaMasterFrames10.htm

I type in a name and the message below appears.
The method specified in the Request Line is not allowed for the resource identified by the request. Please ensure that you have the proper MIME type set up for the resource you are requesting.

Please contact the server's administrator if this problem persists.

Normally I do not have any problem with Internet explorer 5.5

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

I went to the site and it did not explain what to do with the http 405 message and how to correct it. Earthlink's tech was in the dark. I went to install and remove software and whent to ms Internet Explorer, to advance and to Fix and it did not result in anything.

I get the same message when I try
to use the SEARCH function at that
site.

Further research reveals that the error
is related to FORMS and lack of security.

I was unable to find any switch setting
in IE Tools that could do anything at all.

My hunch is that nothing you could do
would alter what is sent back to you
from the site.  So, somehow you must
tell the site that you are a good guy
and that you are sending the data in
the required character format.  If there
is a bug in the way they have set up the
form, that will not be possible.

John Thanks for the points. I have been busy bowling 47 games a week, inventing a bowling glove, talking almost real time to a postgraduate  student in St Petersburg, Russia who wants to become rich by selling IDEAS!!! Unfortunately the ideas stem from the Communist doctrine as seen by wanting to take children from poor class, by contract ( slavery) educating them and get a portion of their wages!!

What I will do is call the Ventura office and see if they can help me. At least I know that you came up with the same
problem. I have seen that code on non existant pages.

I would like to award you the points.

Well, we still haven't solved it,
and it may be something in the
Registry.

However, my IE5 is clean and new,
so I am somewhat baffled, too.

I did plan to read up on MIME a bit.

Same problem here too !
I don't think you'll be able to do much about it other than wait for them to fix the problem

Patricia Siu-Lai HoCommented:
gonzal13, after further reading from the comment of "pleasnospam"/John, enter input to the Search.
I've got the error HTTP 405 error, too.

Agreed that as John said, you cannot do it to correct the error. You may need to send an email to the hostmaster/support of that website and inform their administrators about this error message so that they can review their page and fix that.

These things happen with web developers
who don't always check their work with
all the various operating systems and
browsers that might try to access the site.

In this case, however, I am wondering what
MIME has to do with it.  I still plan to
read up on that.

I suppose others here have wondered about
this kind of sensitive information being
released to the world by a state agency
without using some sort of encryption.

Maybe that has something to do with why
the system failed.  It strikes me as
plausible that the site might work only
in a local environment for agency employees.

Glad to be of some help,

John

I've sent an email to brian jones of  http://courts.countyofventura.org about this error message.

It is nice Brain has sent me a feedback email.

Quoted....

Hello Patricia,

We recently moved our web site from a Unix server to an NT server.  And since cgi-scripts won't run in NT, we're developing a new search engine that will.  We hope to have it up and running soon.

Thanks for your question,

Brian

It is hoped Brain will fix that soon.

HTTP Error 405
405 Method Not Allowed

If they are trying to use perl, probably hasnt associated .pl to perl.exe

Surely we're not all in the same boat !
I'm sticking to my guns and saying there's an inherent problem with the site.

Patricia Siu-Lai HoCommented:
WiZaRd, I don't think so. It looks like most of us agree that the site has inherent problem. It is also confirmed by the site administrator - Mr Brian Jones (see my last comments about his feedback email).

Great Job Patricia,

 Confirming without a doubt the it most definitely the problem of the Site.
I've had that problem myself on my own site and didn't know it until a reader pointed it out to me.

You're a wiz :)

Patecia:

You did a wonderful job. I am glad, being an engineer, that I provided all the information I had on hand. You beat me to it. If I could not find a satisfactory answer, then I would have done the same thing. Thanks for your effort. This is the most wonderful site on the internet and I am proud that I recently under gonzal13 got my 10,000 POINTS! It has been so helful not only to provide answers to questions, but just reading other answers on various subjects. It is better than getting a text book on computers which are normall 2 years behind

Thanks again Gonza113 (Joe)
