HTTP Error 414 “Request-URI Too Long” occurs when the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) requested by the client is too long for the server to handle. This error is often caused by a GET request with too many parameters or a long query string.
To fix this error, you can try one or more of the following:
- Shorten the URL: Try to shorten the length of the URL by removing unnecessary parameters or query strings.
- Use POST method: If the request has a large amount of data, consider using the POST method instead of GET. The POST method sends data in the request body rather than the URL, which helps to reduce the length of the URL.
- Use a shorter alias: If the URL is being used as a link, consider using a shorter alias or URL shortener service to make the link shorter.
- Increase server limits: If you are the server administrator, you can increase the server’s limit for the length of URLs that it can handle. This can be done in the server configuration file.
- Use pagination: If you are requesting a large amount of data, consider using pagination to break the data into smaller chunks.
- Use compression: If the URL contains a large amount of repetitive or redundant data, consider using compression techniques such as gzip to reduce the length of the request.
If none of these methods work, you may need to contact your web host or server administrator for further assistance.
