 this is normal, you should create (or configure) the indexer.
 the indexer should be configured to create a resource that handles the
 PUT method, otherwise, the resource will be effectively created, but it will 
 fail to save the put'ed content (the FileResource, for example, should have 
 its putable attribute turned to true).
