What are the most common HTTP status codes?
HTTP status codes are essential in understanding the response returned by a server after making an HTTP request. They provide information about the status of the request and response from the server.
🎯HTTP response codes are categorized into five groups:
Client Error (400-499)
Server Error (500-599)
🎯Here are some of the most common HTTP status codes:
200 OK: This status code indicates that the request was successful.
404 Not Found: This status code indicates that the requested resource could not be found on the server.
500 Internal Server Error: This status code indicates that there was an error on the server that prevented the request from being fulfilled.
401 Unauthorized: This status code indicates that the client is not authorized to access the requested resource.
403 Forbidden: This status code indicates that the client does not have permission to access the requested resource.
These codes are just a few examples of the many HTTP status codes that exist. The exact list of most common HTTP status codes can vary depending on the context and the specific application.
