DELETE not working with web.config configuration

Hi,

I have a asp.net MVC4 web api application with sqlsvr 2008 database and a sencha application accessing it.  The application accesses the data OK with the GET command but the DELETE is rejected by the server with a not very useful message "DELETE http://1st-tip.com/api/user/1?_dc=1358176005164 500 (Internal Server Error) sencha-touch-all.js:21"

I've included the web.config as follows, can anybody tell me what I've not configured correctly to deny the access to the DELETE command?

Perhaps you need to enable DELETE (and PUT) in IIS

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10906411/asp-net-web-api-put-delete-verbs-not-allowed-iis-8

To use the PUT and DELETE verbs with the Web API you need to edit %userprofile%\documents\iisexpress\config\applicationhost.config and add the verbs to the ExtensionlessUrl handler as described in the link.

It is not your web.config, take a look at your sencha-touch-all.js

Gardavis,

Thanks for your reply but I think my servers configuration for IIS7.5

ExtensionlessUrlHandler-Integrated-4.0
ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_32bit
ExtensionlessUrlHandler-ISAPI-4.0_64bit

And they all have the verbs GET,HEAD,POST,DEBUG,PUT,DELETE,PATCH,OPTIONS configured, see attached.

Any other ideas?
