Full Server Error Codes Explanation
Server Response Codes Explained
100This is a good response. The request was completed and the process will proceed as usual.
101Request to switch protocols (for instance HTTP to FTP) was accepted.
200It simply means all is OK. What the client requested is available
201This means a new address was successfully created through a CGI or posting of form data.
202The client's request was accepted, although not yet acted upon.
203The accepted information in the entity header is not from the original server, but from a third party.
204There is no content in the requested click. Let's say you click on an image map section not attached to a page. This allows the server to just sit there waiting for another click rather than throwing an error.
205This allows the server to reset the content returned by a CGI.
206Only partial content is being returned for some reason.
300The requested address refers to more than one entity. Depending on how the server is configured, you get an error or a choice of which page you want.
301Page has been moved permanently, and the new URL is available. You should be sent there by the server.
302Page has been moved temporarily, and the new URL is available. You should be sent there by the server.
303This is a "see other" SRC. Data is somewhere else and the GET method is used to retrieve it.
304This is a "Not Modified" SRC. If the header in the request asks "If Modified Since", this will return how long it's been since the page was updated.
305This tells the server the requested document must be accessed by using the proxy in the Location header (i.e. ftp, http.)
400There is a syntax error in the request. It is denied.
401The header in your request did not contain the correct authorization codes. You don't get to see what you requested.
402Payment is required. Don't worry about this one. It's not in use yet.
403You are forbidden to see the document you requested. It can also mean that the server doesn't have the ability to show you what you want to see.
404Document not found. The page you want is not on the server nor has it ever been on the server. Most likely you have misspelled the title or used an incorrect capitalization pattern in the URL.
405The method you are using to access the file is not allowed.
406The page you are requesting exists but you cannot see it because your own system doesn't understand the format the page is configured for.
407The request must be authorized before it can take place.
408The request timed out. For some reason the server took too much time processing your request. Net congestion is the most likely reason.
409Conflict. Too many people wanted the same file at the same time. It glutted the server. Try again.
410The page use to be there, but now it's gone.
411Your request is missing a Content-Length header.
412The page you requested has some sort of pre-condition set up. That means that If something is a certain way, you can have the page. If you get a 412, that condition was not met. Oops.
413Too big. What you requested is just too big to process.
414The URL you entered is too long. Really. Too long.
415The page is an unsupported media type, like a proprietary file made specifically for a certain program..
501What you requested of the server cannot be done by the server. Stop doing that you!
502Your server has received errors from the server you are trying to reach. This is better known as the "Bad Gateway" error.
503The format or service you are requesting is temporarily unavailable.
504The gateway as timed out. This is a lot like the 408 error except the time-out occurred specifically at the gateway of the server.
505The HTTP protocol you are asking for is not supported.
