The HTTP 205 status code means a request was successful, and the user agent should reset the document view to its original form.
Theoretically, after a user submits an HTML form, a browser should clear the form upon receiving the
205 Reset Content response. Similar to
204 No Content, servers shouldn’t include a response body (payload) with
205 Reset Content.
Most clients don’t handle this response code properly, so you’re better off using either the
200 OK or
204 No Content status codes.
