Prevent HTTP verb tampering

Similarly the DELETE method can be used to remove important files of the application, thus causing denial of service, removal of configuration files etc.

I don't know what kind of server you're using, but that's not standard functionality for Apache or Litespeed. If it was, it would be a major security issue. No good server operating system is going to allow that kind of behavior.

Edit - 
I do see where people are enabling these request methods, because they're asking on stack overflow, and getting answers. Seems to me it's a pretty stupid thing to do ... But then I also think REST sucks too. Just don't enable them, and you've got nothing to worry about.
