FIX Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in
Date Published: 04 September 2007
Adding a new web service to an application today so that I can delay loading some web user controls and ran into this 500 Error when calling the web service:
Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in /GetHtml
Found this KB article with the fix:
Add the following to web.config since GET and POST are disabled by default in ASP.NET 2.0 and greater:
<configuration> <system.web> <webServices> <protocols> <add name= "HttpGet""> <add name= "HttpPost"> </protocols> </webServices> </system.web> </configuration>
