How to respond correctly to a POST request for a static file?

January 12, 2012 04:06AM
hi,

I have a Facebook app hosted on nginx. Faceboook fetches the data by issuing a POST request for index.html before embedding it in their canvas. My server replies with 404, instead of the expected 405. If it was 405, I could fix things by adding "error_page 405 =200 $uri;" to the configuration file, but for some reason it's 404.

I can think of two ways of correcting the situation:
1. Find a way to have the server respond with 405 and then add the above line. This is probably the correct way.
2. Respond with 200 when a POST request is issued for index.html.

How do I implement either one of these?

thanks,
Johnny.
