405 - http verb Facebook error

Hi,

I have a link that will sort by 'liked' or 'Comments' of saved entries in my application hosted on IIS7
that throws up the following 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.

It seems to be happy with all the other requests (eg saving data), would there be an additional method to 'POST' and 'GET' Facebook uses. Also the application was working fine on a staging environment which also runs IIS7?

I am not sure if the issue is in IIS7, my code, or Facebook. Any help would be much appreciated.

Best wishes

Michael

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. After playing around we found we were missing a default page. We added Index.aspx and that fixed it. Not sure why it threw a 405 and not a 403.

Best wishes
