Below are the methods tried to configure in web.config level. Http methods tried in web.config

Remove the

<deny verbs=“*” users=“*” />

You are denying All Users and All Verbs before the evaluation of the other statements in the xml (web.config is an xml file with a different file extension) thereby rendering them moot.

Also, sharepoint requires many of the other HTTP verbs you have set to deny.

Why are you doing this?
