Subject:   Apache giving 405 errors for POST requests.

this may not be the perfect juncture for this question / observation, but as I am confident that Morbus knows the answer, I'm going to give it a try.

I'm getting 405 errors from Apache for any POST request. I've had a look at the access log files to verify this, and all POST requests are resulting in 405.

This is odd, because a couple of days ago, I tried the PHP test in the article (hello.php POSTS data to action.php), and it worked fine.

As far as I'm aware I have not changed anythingin the httpd.config file since then - but I am having my doubts.

I've had a good look throught the Apache documentation, and I can't find anything that might cause or rectify this issue.

Any thoughts - anyone?

    I am having a similar problem. I have noticed a few other things in my situation however. That is, http://www.mydomain.com/cgi-bin/ is not available and the files at http://www.mydomain.com/CGI-Executables/ are read as text files. This suggests that the Script Alias in httpd.conf is not being set but I have checked it and it looks fine. Any other ideas folks?
