Error 405 Method Not Allowed

If submitting a form results in the following error:
HTTP Error 405
405 Method Not Allowed
this means that the method specified in the Request Line is not allowed for the resource identified by the request. Please ensure that you have the proper MIME type specified for the resource you are requesting.

This error occurs if the Action attribute of a form is not an executable file or if the Action field in the Property Inspector is left blank, specifying an HTML file for the Action or saving web pages as .HTM or .HTML instead of .ASP, .CFM or .JSP and specifying .HTM or .HTML as the default file extension in the site definitions.

Fixes

Specify an Action attribute in the form's Property Inspector.
Make sure the Action field is not left blank and specifies an executable file. Common valid file types for the form Action attribute include: .ASP, .JSP, .CFM, .EXE, .DLL or .CGI.
Check the file extension of the web page producing the error. The page must have a file extension of .ASP, .CFM or .JSP. If the page has an extension of .HTM or .HTML it will need to be renamed with the default extension for the server model specified in the site definitions.
Check that the correct page extension is specified in the site definitions.
Check the Page Extension field in the Application Server category of the site definitions. The default extension should be .ASP, .CFM or .JSP depending on the server model chosen.
