Question

Cannot make POST request

Connected Tutorial
This question is a follow-up to this tutorial:

I followed the exact same steps as mentioned in the tutorial. GET requests work both on browser and Postman but when I make a POST request using Postman it says method not allowed although I have defined a route for POST request in my flask app.

Hi there,

What I could suggest is checking your Nginx error log for some more information on what the problem could be caused by:

tail -100 /var/log/nginx/error.log

Another thing that I could suggest is, if you have a domain name with an SSL certificate, make sure that you specify https:// in Postman as if you have a HTTP to HTTPS redirect it could cause that problem that you are seeing.
