Server does not want to process the request yet

Specification of the HTTP status code 425

A 425 Too Early status code indicates that the server is unwilling to risk processing a request that might be replayed.

User agents that send a request in early data are expected to retry the request when receiving a 425 Too Early response status code. A user agent SHOULD retry automatically, but any retries MUST NOT be sent in early data.

In all cases, an intermediary can forward a 425 Too Early status code. Intermediaries MUST forward a 425 Too Early status code if the request that it received and forwarded contained an Early-Data header field. Otherwise, an intermediary that receives a request in early data MAY automatically retry that request in response to a 425 Too Early status code, but it MUST wait for the TLS handshake to complete on the connection where it received the request.

The server cannot assume that a client is able to retry a request unless the request is received in early data or the Early-Data header field is set to "1". A server SHOULD NOT emit the 425 Too Early status code unless one of these conditions is met.

The 425 Too Early status code is not cacheable by default. Its payload is not the representation of any identified resource.

Source / Quote by: The 425 Too Early HTTP Status Code is specified by section 5.2 of RFC4918.
