Unknown command

The unknown command error is a WebDriver error that occurs when the driver does not recognize the command/HTTP endpoint.


The /session/{session id}/foo endpoint does not exist, and will return an unknown command error with a 404 Not Found HTTP status code:

curl -i -d '{}' http://localhost:4444/session/foo
HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
