Site5, the trailing slash issue

· listen

1 minute read

Anyone with a hosting service from Site5 could have this problem: when you have your web application in a directory symlinked, like

  ~/public_html/webapp -> ~/apps/webapp

when accessing to the URL you will have an error (Bad Request). But if you add the trailing slash to the URL, everything will work fine. After some digging in Site5 foruns, I resolved the problem by creating a file, named 400.shtml, placed in the public_html directory, with the following content:

  <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
  window.location="<!--#echo var="REQUEST_URI" -->/";
  // -->

Hope it helps.
