"Only get, put, and delete requests are allowed" on an XML request... why??

My app on rails 2.3.2 has a standard scaffold for a resource "thing"
I try to create a new "thing" like this:

curl -d '<thing><name>pallone</name></thing>' 'http://0.0.0.0:3000/
things/1' -d '_method=put' -H 'Content-type: application/xml'

and I get the error "Only get, put, and delete requests are allowed"
why? It's driving me crazy...

(My app is accessed by a flex3 frontend that speaks XML, and can only
send get and post requests)

Hi,

First of all, this is the "core" group, meant for discussions on the
development and direction of Rails itself, not a help forum -- there's
a dedicated group for that purpose.

Second, you should issue your POST to "/things", not "/things/1".

Cheers,
Daniel

sorry I didn't realize I was in the wrong forum.. thanks.
