Azure Services – Method Not Allowed (405)

Posted by Ramprasad Navaneethakrishnan on March 21, 2009

Hi Folks,

This is my first post on Windows Azure and I hope I will add more as time goes on.. Now lets get to the business!

This is what I was trying to do..

1. I was trying to learn Azure Services. So as a first step I installed all the necessary setups

2. I completed my HelloWorld App with Windows Azure and I had no problem.

3. Now I tried to try my had at incorporating WCF into Windows Azure.

4. So I wrote a WCF service and this service write some data into the Azure Local Resource.

5. When I pressed F5, Boom.. I got this “Method Not Allowed (405)” Error.

6. So as a good boy, I googled “Method Not Allowed (405) + Winodws Azure” and got some helpĀ  and the prominent result says IIS7 did not have handlers to SVC files. They wanted me to run ServiceModelReg -i from the location “C:\Windows \Microsoft NET\Frameworv\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation”.

7. But there is an alternate solution too..

8. Open Server Manager –> Click Features –>Add Features

9. Select .NET Framework 3.0 features – > Install.

10. This is how the screen looks after the feature is installed

server-manager-add-features

11. Now SVC files are added to the IIS 7 handlers. This is how the Handler Mappings in the IIS 7 looks..

iis7-handler-mappings

Now method not allowed (405) error is gone and my WCF service is working just fine..

Hope this is useful. Please give your comments on this post.

Thanks,

Ramprasad.
