Web API Put Request generates an Http 405 Method Not Allowed error

So, I checked Windows Features to make sure I didn’t have this thing called WebDAV installed, and it said I didn’t. Anyways, I went ahead and placed the following in my web.config (both front end and WebAPI, just to be sure), and it works now. I placed this inside <system.webServer>.

<modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true">
    <remove name="WebDAVModule"/> <!-- add this -->

Additionally, it is often required to add the following to web.config in the handlers. Thanks to Babak

    <remove name="WebDAV" />
