HTTPMethod

HTTPMethod specifies additional HTTP methods that should be processed by EZproxy. HTTP methods are the verbs used by browsers to make requests to web servers. The standard HTTP methods supported by EZproxy are GET, POST, and HEAD. EZproxy rejects any requests that use methods that are not pre-authorized. This directive can be used to authorize the use of other HTTP methods, as may be required to support special web server environments.

HTTPMethod is a repeatable position-independent config.txt directive.
