Http Web Response Codes

Let’s see, What are HTTP Web Response Codes?

100 Continue This means that the server has received the request headers and that the client should proceed to send the request body (in the case of a request for which a body needs to be sent; for example, a POST request). If the request body is large, sending it to a server when a request has already been rejected based upon inappropriate headers is inefficient.

To have a server check if the request could be accepted based on the request’s headers alone, a client must send Expect: 100-continue as a header in its initial request and check if a 100 Continue status code is received in response before continuing (or receive 417 Expectation Failed and not continue)


101 Switching Protocols


102 Processing (WebDAV) WebDAV was an Internet Engineering Task Force Working Group. The abbreviation stands for Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning. The term also refers to the set of extensions to the HTTP protocol that the group defined which allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers. The WebDAV protocol’s aim was to make the World Wide Web a readable and writable medium


2xx Success (The action was successfully received, understood, and accepted.)


200 OK —Standard response for HTTP successful requests.


201 Created


202 Accepted


203 Non-Authoritative Information (since HTTP/1.1)


204 No Content


205 Reset Content


206 Partial Content Notice that a file has been partially downloaded. This is used by tools like Wget (GNU Wget is a free software program that implements simple and powerful content retrieval from web servers and is part of the GNU Project) to enable resuming of interrupted downloads or split a download into multiple simultaneous streams.


207 Multi-Status (WebDAV) The message body that follows is an XML message and can contain a number of separate response codes, depending on how many sub-requests were made.


3xx Redirection (The client must take additional action to complete the request.)


300 Multiple Choices


301 Moved Permanently This and all future requests should be directed to another URI.


302 Found This is the most popular redirect code, but also an example of industrial practice contradicting the standard. HTTP/1.0 specification required the client to perform a temporary redirect (the original describing phrase was “Moved Temporarily”), but popular browsers implemented it as a 303 See Other. Therefore, HTTP/1.1 added status codes 303 and 307 to disambiguate between the two behaviors. However, the majority of Web applications and frameworks still use the 302 status code as if it were the 303.


303 See Other (since HTTP/1.1) The response to the request can be found under another URI using a GET method.


304 Not Modified Indicates the request URL has not been modified since last requested. Typically, the HTTP client provides a header like the If-Modified-Since header to provide a time with which to compare against. Utilizing this saves bandwidth and reprocessing on both the server and client.


305 Use Proxy (since HTTP/1.1) Many HTTP clients (such as Mozilla and Internet Explorer) don’t correctly handle responses with this status code.


306 Switch Proxy No longer used.


307 Temporary Redirect (since HTTP/1.1) In this occasion, the request should be repeated with another URI, but future requests can still be directed to the original URI. In contrast to 303, the original POST request must be repeated with another POST request.


4xx Client Error


400 Bad Request The request contains bad syntax or cannot be fulfilled.


401 Unauthorized Similar to 403 Forbidden, but specifically for use when authentication is possible but has failed or not yet been provided. See basic authentication scheme and digest access authentication.


402 Payment Required The original intention was that this code might be used as part of some form of digital cash or micropayment scheme, but that has not happened, and this code has never been used.


403 Forbidden The request was a legal request, but the server is refusing to respond to it. Unlike a 401 Unauthorized response, authenticating will make no difference.


404 Not Found The client was able to communicate with the server but either the server could not find what was requested, or it was configured not to fulfill the request and not reveal the reason why. 404 errors should not be confused with “server not found” or similar errors, in which a connection to the destination server cannot be made at all.


405 Method Not Allowed A request was made to a URL using a request method not supported by that URL; for example, using GET on a form which requires data to be presented via POST, or using PUT on a read-only resource.


406 Not Acceptable


407 Proxy Authentication Required


408 Request Timeout


409 Conflict


410 Gone Indicates that the resource requested is no longer available and will not be available again. This should be used when a resource has been intentionally removed; however, in practice, a 404 Not Found is often issued instead.


411 Length Required


412 Precondition Failed


413 Request Entity Too Large


414 Request-URI Too Long


415 Unsupported Media Type


416 Requested Range Not Satisfiable


417 Expectation Failed


422 Unprocessable Entity (WebDAV) The request was well-formed but was unable to be followed due to semantic errors.


423 Locked (WebDAV) The resource that is being accessed is locked


424 Failed Dependency (WebDAV) The request failed due to failure of a previous request (e.g. a PROPPATCH).


425 Unordered Collection Defined in drafts of WebDav Advanced Collections but not yet implemented.


426 Upgrade Required The client should switch to TLS/1.0.( Transport Layer Security (TLS)3.0 and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols which provide secure communications on the Internet for such things as web browsing, e-mail, Internet faxing, instant messaging and other data transfers.)


449 Retry With A Microsoft extension: The request should be retried after doing the appropriate action.


5xx Server Error The server failed to fulfill an apparently valid request.


500 Internal Server Error


501 Not Implemented


502 Bad Gateway


503 Service Unavailable


504 Gateway Timeout


505 HTTP Version Not Supported


506 Variant Also Negotiates


507 Insufficient Storage (WebDAV)


509 Bandwidth Limit Exceeded This status code, while used by many servers, is not an official HTTP status code.


510 Not Extended
