View Full Version : Form - HTTP Error 405

Heya all, dose anyone know why I get the following below?

I have created 3 forms on 3 separate html documents. The 1st and second form have their action set to Post and this is the message I get.

When I set the cation to Get, the forms work but id prefer to have them set to post.

Can anyone suggest what to look for?.
The page cannot be displayed

Thanks for your help.

your web server may not be configured properly...

POST's could be disallowed. You need to enable this method
