I tried curl upload for my rpms but it is given this error.

Have you looked in the Nexus Repository logs to see if there’s any more information? Do you expect your RPM to be only 1925 bytes?

it has given 405 error.

admin [29/Nov/2021:14:32:17 +0300] “POST /service/extdirect/poll/rapture_State_get HTTP/1.1” 200 1394 77 5 “Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/96.0.4664.45 Safari/537.36” [qtp864348718-437]

Error code 405 means that the HTTP method is not allowed at the resource you’re requesting.
The log line you posted shows that you are trying to use an internal API that is not meant to be used by users.
Please have a look at this article that shows how to upload a file to Nexus Repository 3.

@dsawa Is it possible to use the API for uploading directories with files/directories in them?

I finally did it, upload and download via curl multiple file folder etc.
