Earlier today I was banging my head against a HTTP 504 error, and then a 503, trying to configure a nice little XML based business-to-business setup... To clear my head I thought I'd look up the difference, as I couldn't remember on top of my head which was which.
The Internet, as usual via my friend Google, came to my rescue: Bigblock.com's HTTP Status Codes table is nicely set up and informative, and the wildwire HTTP Status Messages overview covers even the more exotic 416 and 417 messages... FYI for the not-so-technical reader:
HTTP status codes are returned by web servers to indicate the status of a request. The status code is a 3-digit code indicating the particular response. The first digit of this code identifies the class of the status code. The remaining 2 digits correspond to the specific condition within the response class.
