These status codes are applicable to any request method. This class of status code indicates that further action needs to be taken by the user agent in order to fulfil the request. Here is my fixed version. This response code is probably the most famous one due to its frequent occurence on the web. By putting in unnecessary codes, you will only distract the users and force them to consult Google, Wikipedia and other websites. Therefore this is a server error, i. This status code is commonly used when the server does not wish to reveal exactly why the request has been refused, or when no other response is applicable.
Redirection messages The request has more than one possible response. Note: The 502 and 503 codes are new and for discussion, September 19, 1994 The codes in this section indicate action to be taken normally automatically by the client in order to fulfill the request. Success 2xx These codes indicate success. The namespace specified for the request did not exist. Status when wrapped responses e. The implication is that this is a temporary condition which will be alleviated after some delay. If the client receives an error code such as 403 Forbidden or 405 Method Not Allowed then it shouldn't send the request's body.
That's your private concern, not the concern of the client making the request. Doing that, you could use your technique of returning 200's without giving much away. It may have provided the wrong credentials or none at all. Servers are not required to use the 431 status code; when under attack, it may be more appropriate to just drop connections, or take other steps. For example, if you specify an invalid value for a parameter, the locationType will be parameter and the location will be the name of the parameter.
If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 404 Not Found can be used instead. This service instance may have no more than 'maximum number of topics' topics. For now, let's check what Response header fields are. In particular, in your example case, the webserver can locate the application just fine, but the application then fails to locate the subresource tree that has been requested. This code is only allowed in situations where it is expected that the user might be able to resolve the conflict and resubmit the request. However, it only takes one mistyped character to result in a 404. Like the found response, this suggests that the client go try another network address.
Would you like to answer one of these instead? The below status codes are defined by. This is mainly to allow input for scripts without changing the document at the same time. I suggested to raise a 404 error when there is no tree. If you enter something in the past, it will return the first revision. Subsequent requests by the client are permissible.
I'll try to spare flames and fury. This response is only cacheable if indicated by a Cache-Control or Expires header field. Likewise, user agents should display any included entity to the user. PaymentRequired 402 The parameter to this message gives a specification of charging schemes acceptable. This error implies that the service should become available at some point. The request may or may not eventually be acted upon, as it may be disallowed when processing actually takes place.
Code and Description 1 1xx: Informational It means the request was received and the process is continuing. Was the resource was moved or deleted on the server? One issue could be billing. Wikipedia Indicates the resource has not been modified since last requested. Except as otherwise noted, the content of this page is licensed under the , and code samples are licensed under the. This class of status code indicates a provisional response, consisting only of the Status-Line and optional headers, and is terminated by an empty line. I believe that it's wrong since the tree should be always present. Categorizing codes like this helps you quicker identify the type of error, but it can have benefits beyond organization.
The rows are not, they only match some parameters. The number of messages is currently 'current backlog size'. Even though these types of errors are client-related, it is often useful to know which error code a user is encountering to determine if the potential issue can be fixed by server configuration. However, this specification does not define any standard for such automatic selection. The 202 response is intentionally non-committal.
