PUT request giving error "405 Method Not Allowed"

I am building a rest webservice using SLIM which is working fine with GET and POST method but when i tried to Request a PUT method. It is giving me error “405 Method Not Allowed”. i don’t know what is the problem.
Here is my code:
$app->put('/user/:id', function($user_id) use ($app) { echo 'done'; });

Here is my .htaccess:
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php [QSA,L]

Need Help! My hosting is Godaddy

How are you sending the request? What is the response you get? Response should contain a list of allowed methods

I am using Postman to check my webservice. FYI Get and Post are working fine. But whenever i make a Put request. Postman shows me error like this:

405 Method Not Allowed

<!–[if lte IE 6]>

Method Not Allowed

The HTTP verb used to access this page is not allowed.

Web Server at immacbytes.com `

That does not look like a response from Slim. Could it be that the webserver is blocking PUT and Slim is not even hit?

Yes! webserver is blocking Put and that’s why Slim is not even hitting Put method.

Well, then search for some documentation at GoDaddy on how to allow PUT requests.

Ok, Thanks for your response.

According to the docs, you can also specify the request method using the _METHOD query string parameter.

If your hosting provider supports POST, but not PUT, you could try adding _METHOD=PUT to your POST data.

Thanks for response. Can you please write a single example here?
$app->put('/user/:id', function($user_id) use ($app) { echo 'done'; });
so that it would make me more clear.

Here is an example for the route that matches your PUT request:

$app->put('/user/{user_id}', function($request, $response, $args) {
    // the url argument is stored in $args 
    $userId = $args['user_id'];

    // parsing the form data
    $data = $request->getParsedBody();
    $name = $data['name'];

    // writing a string as output, normally you would some sort of view
        sprintf('PUT: user id=%d, name=%s', $userId, htmlspecialchars($name))

You can submit a request that matches the PUT route using a POST request, by adding _METHOD=PUT in your post data, as I mentioned. Using an HTML form this would look something like:

<form action="/user/5" method="POST">
    <-- indication for Slim that this should be interpreted as a PUT request -->
    <input type="hidden" name="_METHOD" value="PUT"/>

    <!-- more form data -->
    <p><label>Name:</label> <input type="text" name="name"/></p>

    <p><button type="submit">Submit form</button></p>

Hope that helps.

Thanks @llvdl , But I am requesting from Android device(Java). How to do this request in java?

Sorry @JoeBengalen Without using SLIM, I can update a column with simple Query. But Slim “PUT” method is not working and I am continuously getting Method Not Allowed Error. Need Help!

Can you retrieve a PUT request without using Slim? Or are you using POST to update the column with simple Query

I am doing a update using PUT request as follows:

$app->put('/user/:id', function($name) use ($app) 
     global $app;
     $id= $app->request->put('id');
     $db = new DbHandler();
    $response = $db->updUser($id, $name);
    echoRespnse(200, $response);

And in DbHandler() function, I am doing this:

 public function updUser($id, $name) 
      $response = array();
  $db = new DbConnect();
      $conn = $db->connect();
  $sql = "UPDATE table SET name = ? WHERE id = ?";
      $stmt = sqlsrv_prepare( $conn, $sql, array( &$name, &$id));
      if (sqlsrv_execute( $stmt ) === true)
          // User successfully updated
          $response["error"] = false;
          $response["message"] = 'updated success';
            // Failed to update user
            $response["error"] = true;
            $response["message"] = "Failed to update ";
        return $response;

But whenever I access this function, it returns me 405 Method Not Allowed Error.
If I do POST requests, or GET request with the same methods, then all works fine!

How are you making the PUT request? Can show some code or a screen shot (if using Postman)?
