I had posted this question in a different twisted mailing list but did not
got a solution ; I hope that maybe members of this forum can help me
I am trying the exmaple in the python docs -
Configuring and Using the Twisted.Web Server - Twisted Web Development.
it says there:
"You can also create a Site instance by hand, passing it a Resource
object which will serve as the root of the site:
from twisted.web import server, resource
from twisted.internet import reactor
isLeaf = True
def render_GET(self, request):
return "<html>Hello, world!</html>"
site = server.Site(Simple())
So I prepared a script named myhttp exactly like this and ran ./myhttp
I had made sure with netstat that indeed port 8080 was free before
running the script and after
running the script it was in a listening state.
But when pointing the Mozilla browser to http://localhost:8080 (or
I got the following error:
"Method Not Allowed
Your browser approached me (at /) with the method "GET". I only allow
the method here."
I had also made sure that there in no problem with iptables and that
the iptable service is down.
I had also tried:
telnet localhost 8080
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
GET / HTTP/1.0
And I got this as a response:
HTTP/1.0 405 Method Not Allowed
Date: Tue, 31 May 2005 13:45:29 GMT
<head><title>405 - Method Not Allowed</title></head>
<body><h1>Method Not Allowed</h1>
<p>Your browser approached me (at /) with the method "GET".
allow the method here.</p>
Connection closed by foreign host.
Tracing this error shows that this it stems from twisted/web/server.py.
I also tried it on a second machine with the latest stable releases
(TwistedWeb-0.5.0, Twisted-2.0.1 , Python-2.4.1, and
and I got the same error.
I am trying it on RedHat 9 Linux (x386 based).
Any idea ?
Am I missing something?
Any help will be appreciated.
