HTTP Error 302 - Moved Temporarily

302 Status Code Explained


A status code of 302 tells a client that the resource they asked for has temporarily moved to a new location. The response should also include this location. It tells the client that it should carry on using the same URL to access this resource.


Why it Occurs


The HTTP response status code 302 Moved Temporarily is the most common way of performing a redirection.It is an example of industry practice contradicting the standard HTTP/1.0 specification, which required the client to perform a temporary redirect. The describing phrase was "Moved Temporarily?. But popular browsers implemented it as a 303 See Other, i.e. changing the request type to GET regardless of what it had been originally.


Fixing 302 Error Code


If the 302 status code is received in response to a request other than GET or HEAD, the user agent MUST NOT automatically redirect the request unless it can be confirmed by the user, since this might change the conditions under which the request was issued.
