    Internet Error Codes

    Here are the most common codes and messages you’re likely to see on your Web browser (HTTP), when accessing Usenet, using e-mail, or using the FTP protocol to upload or download files.

    The codes can generally by grouped as follows –
    100-199 – Information Codes. Provide information about the request or the servers involved. 200-299 – Success Codes. Indicate that the request was accepted or the requested file has no content (empty). 300-399 – Redirects. Requested content has moved. 400-499 – Client Errors. Cannot find content or you don’t have the correct permissions to access it. 500-599 – Server Errors. There is a problem at the server end stopping the request from completing successfully.

    To give you a greater understanding of these errors, here is a list of the most popular codes:
    As a rule of thumb, the first thing you should if you get an error is make sure that you have typed in the URL or page address correctly.
    Bad request 400The request could not be understood by the server due to bad syntax. You should not repeat the request without modifications.
    Unauthorized 401The creators of a Web page may want only certain people have access to that page. You should only retry the request if you know that you have authorization.
    PaymentRequired 402This message gives a specification of charging schemes which are acceptable. You may retry the request with a suitable ChargeTo header.
    Forbidden 403The request is for something forbidden. Authorization will not help. This status code is commonly used when the server does not wish to reveal exactly why the request has been refused, or when no other response is applicable. (The file needs to be set with “read permissions” for all users.)
    Not found 404The server has not found anything matching what you requested. Make sure that the Web address (URL) that you typed in exactly matches the address you were given. Check that the capitalization matches, spelling, and punctuation, like dots (.) and slashes (/), are correctly placed. Be sure you are using the forward slash (/) and not the backward slash ().
    405 Method Not AllowedThe method specified in the Request-Line is not allowed for the resource identified by the request. The response must include an Allow header containing a list of valid methods for the requested resource.
    406 Not AcceptableThe resource identified by the request is only capable of generating response entities which have content characteristics not acceptable according to the accept headers sent in the request.
    407 Proxy Authentication RequiredThis code is similar to 401 (Unauthorized), but indicates that you must first authenticate yourself with the proxy. The proxy must return a Proxy-Authenticate header field (section 14.33) containing a challenge applicable to the proxy for the requested resource. You may repeat the request with a suitable Proxy-Authorization header field (section 14.34). HTTP access authentication is explained in section 11.
    408 Request TimeoutThe client did not produce a request within the time that the server was prepared to wait. You may repeat the request without modifications at any later time.
    409 ConflictThe request could not be completed due to a conflict with the current state of the resource. This code is only allowed in situations where it is expected that the user might be able to resolve the conflict and resubmit the request.
    410 GoneThe 410 response is primarily intended to assist the task of web maintenance by notifying the recipient that the resource is intentionally unavailable and that the server owners want remote links to that resource be removed.
    411 Length RequiredThe server refuses to accept the request without a defined Content- Length. The client may repeat the request if it adds a valid Content-Length header field containing the length of the message-body in the request message.
    412 Precondition FailedThe precondition given in one or more of the request-header fields evaluated to false when it was tested on the server. This response code allows the client to place preconditions on the current resource metainformation (header field data) and thus prevent the requested method from being applied to a resource other than the one intended.
    413 Request Entity Too LargeThe server is refusing to process a request because the request entity is larger than the server is willing or able to process. The server may close the connection to prevent the client from continuing the request.
    414 Request-URI Too LongThe server is refusing to service the request because the Request-URI is longer than the server is willing to interpret.
    415 Unsupported Media TypeThe server is refusing to service the request because the entity of the request is in a format not supported by the requested resource for the requested method.
    Internal Error 500The server encountered an unexpected condition which prevented it from fulfilling the request. Your request could not be processed due to an internal server error.
    Not implemented 501The server does not support the functionality requir
