The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method (HTTP verb) is being used".

What we need to see is the PHP code you have written for this. Post that code. Then only we can determine where the problem is.

Solution 1

Here, refer this: MS Support: "HTTP Error 405.0 - Method not allowed"[^]

As suggested,
Resolution 1
Make sure that the client sends a request that contains a valid HTTP method. To do this, follow these steps:
- Click Start, type Notepad in the Start Search box, right-click Notepad, and then click Run as administrator.
- Note If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or provide confirmation.
- On the File menu, click Open. In the File name box, type %windir%\system32\inetsrv\config\applicationhost.config, and then click Open.
- In the ApplicationHost.config file, locate the <handlers> tag.
- Make sure that all the handlers use valid HTTP methods.
- Save the ApplicationHost.config file.

Resolution 2
Send the POST request to a page that is configured to be handled by a handler other than the StaticFile handler (for example, the ASPClassic handler). Or, change the request that is being handled by the StaticFile handler so that it is a GET request instead of a POST request.
