HTTP Error 406 - Not Acceptable

Oct 18, 2013 at 3:21 PM
I was getting the HTTP Error 406 - Not Acceptable, and finally resolved it. The issue seemed to occur because I was trying to host my drop directory inside the same directory as the web application. In other words, VSGalleryDrop\ was sibling to the web.config. As soon as I moved the drop to an outside directory (D:\VSGalleryDrop\), the issue was resolved.

I'm not sure why this fixes the problem, or why the problem occurs. If someone has further insight, I'd love to hear it. Otherwise, this is a solution in case someone else runs into the problem.

Thanks for the info! It should work do do this, however I wouldn't recommend having the drop folder in the same directory as the web application.
