I recently upgraded from Visual Studio 2010 to the Visual Studio 2012 RC. The installer also installs IIS 8 Express which Visual Studio now uses as the default web server.
IIS 8 is blocking my WEB API requests that use PUT AND DELETE verbs. IIS returns a 405 error,
The requested resource does not support http method 'PUT'.
I know people have issues with this in the past and there are several messages about it on Stack Overflow. With IIS 7 Express the solution was to uninstall WebDav. Unfortunately I don't see any way to do that with IIS 8.
I've tried editing out the WebDav sections from applicationhost.config but that hasn't helped. For example I removed
<add name="WebDAVModule" image="%IIS_BIN%webdav.dll" /> from the config file.
I've spent far too long on this. There must be a simple way to enable PUT and DELETE?
