SharePoint 2013: Web Application General Settings: Error, Something Went Wrong...


When attempting to modify the Web Application General Settings of a particular Web Application, an error occurs and it is not possible to view the Web Application General Settings page in Central Administration.

Error:  Sorry, something went wrong.  Updates are currently disallowed on GET requests.  To allow updates on a GET, set the 'AllowUnsafeUpdates' property on SPWeb.


1.  Open the SharePoint Management Shell

2.  Type $WebApp = Get-SPWebApplication http://host.domain.com and press Enter

3.  Type $WebApp.HttpThrottleSettings and press Enter

4.  Type  $WebApp.Update() and Press Enter

5.  Attempt to open the Web Application General Settings from Central Administration.  The page should work at this point.
