Verb PUT does not work, unable to save anything in 2.9

I've been struggling with this problem for a week now, and I'm starting to feel desperate!

I upgraded my blog to BE 2.9 (it's really sweet!). At first everything seemed fine. I could create posts, but then I discovered that I could not change and save them. Delete also worked fine. When I tried to save things in the admin settings, same problem.

I found this forum topic:

I have exactly the same problem, although I'm not able to solve it. I've tried everything I can think of, but nothing helps. I have not full control of the server, since I'm using host company.

I've also tried the stuff in this post:

No luck.

This is what a successful post looks like:


A second later when saving, the put:


As far as I know, I (or the service provider) meets all requirements, .NET 4.5, Full trust, writable folder. It's so strange, everything else works, delete, save... It would be a shame if I have to rollback to the old 2.8 now with the new version so great in all other aspects. I really hope someone could help me figuring this out!

Hi kaze72,

Look at the very bottom of your screenshot:

Response Headers

Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5
X-App-Hosting: pool = classic

Also IIS 7.5 means more likely on a Windows 2008 Server.

You need Windows 2012 Server in Integrated mode to work "as-is".

Otherwise your hosting provider will have to make some changes on their end to get Web API to work correctly.

-When you save changes in setting->BASICS for name and description of your blog, it will not change in be 2.9 version.

-Just choose standard in Set as mobile option, and click on save.

-So you must choose also mobile theme, apart from Set as current theme option.

It work for me.

Thanks, I've contacted my service provider, hopefully they are able to do some reconfiguring.

zealgeeks: I also had the problem you describe. I solved it, the other issue is something else unfortunately. Thanks for you answer.

It is a month that I combat with this error.. I CANNOT EDIT a post due this PUT error

IIS 8.0 on windows server 2012; I own the server, so I can do all the modifications I want.

I added PUT and DELETE to the verb allowed to ExtensionLessUrlHandler (to all the 3 versions: Integrated, isapi32/64); the appPool is running in integrated mode4.0, the appPool user has full right to app_data folder, I removed webdav module...
I did ALL what I read about this issue, but I still unable to save a post edit (only new post).

What can I do to debug better this error? I want to be sure that it is related to "verb not allowed" issue and nothing else...
