What does HTTP Status Code 303-SEE OTHER mean?
HTTP Status Code 303-See Other is one of the classes of 3xx(redirection) response code that indicates the redirects don’t go to the freshly uploaded content, but to another page. Another page may be a confirmation page or an upload progress page.
Status Code 303 response code is often returned in response to a PUT or POST request. The GET technique is always used to show this redirected page.
The user agent is being redirected to a different resource, as indicated by a URI in the Location header field, which is meant to give an indirect answer to the original request.
Any HTTP method can return this status code. It’s mostly used to allow the result of a POST action to redirect the user agent to a specific site, because it gives the information matching to the POST response in a format that can be recognized, bookmarked, and cached separately from the original request.
|POST / HTTP/1.1|
|HTTP/1.1 303 See Other|
Location Header Field
In some responses, the Location header field is used to refer to a particular resource in connection to the response. The type of relationship is defined by the combination method of the request and status code semantics.
Location = URI-reference
It only provides a meaning when used with a 3xx (redirection) or 201 (created) status response.
