Response Content-Type is returned as text/html instead of application/json RRS feed

  • Question

  • Overview of my application -> Web UI built on MVC .NET 4.5 and its calling a backend Web API .NET 4.5 REST service to get data.

    When my web application loads for the first time, it throws an Internal Server Error. If I refresh the page, it works fine.

    On checking my Chrome Tools Network log, i saw that the content-type is returned as text/html instead of application/json. That is the only difference which I saw in both the request/responses captured.

    Can anyone please let me know how can I triage and fix this issue ?

  • Either the client needs to expect a context-type of HTML. I would say that the first response is a HTTP 200 OK or some HTTP response code,  and then the Json is or is not sent based on the HTTP response code.

    Anyway, your issues can be addressed at the ASP.NET forums.

  • The HTTP response code returned for the first request is 500 Internal Server Error. 2nd time its 200.

    The 500 code means that program through an exception that was unhandled.
