Scards & ICT Creativity of The Year

Second part of April was great time for me :D.
I justified (somehow) my absence in blogging for long time without new post.

Another great happening was on 26th of April, in Tirana, Albania. ICTS Media supported by several other respected institutions (and governments of Albania and Kosovo) organized Albanian ICT Awards, “The highest individual recognition” for contribution and achievement in technology for pas year.

I was very honored and lucky to be the winner of this award for what I’m really happy! I am really happy also for the project (for what I was estimated), Scards that made the difference and I hope will do also in the future.

So in this short post I just want to post some photos of the event I really enjoyed.

Web API on IIS 8.0 – 405 Method Not Allowed for PUT

Lately I’m extensively developing my web services in ASP.Net Web API and generally speaking it’s good framework in supporting HTTP programming (REST “style”), even if it is in it’s early stages and needed more features to be “completed”.

Yesterday I had a very interesting problem when I published new version of my project (btw, I am developing web api in ASP.Net 4.5 and deploy it in Windows Server 2012 and IIS 8).

When I hit my web api with a PUT request (PUT -> api.mydomain.com/profilecontroller/) web server’s response was error 405 (or method not allowed) while in same time my controller supported all types of requests (get, post, put, delete).

I was surprised with this error while just few minutes earlier everything worked perfectly.

I googled for some time and get disappointed with results – no solution found.

Started to think what I did with my web server and I remembered some “not friendly” touches 😀 in Web Server (IIS) Role configuration, like installing “WebDAV Publishing”.

I immediately uninstalled (unchecked) that “feature (not Windows Feature :D)” in Web Server (IIS) Role and everything started to work like a charm :D.

IIS Role WebDav

It was kind of a stupid solution (I have to admit) but finally everything worked fine :D.
