Odd things happening on the site

then click on 'Go' to take you to the "Enhancements & New Features"
section. This will cause you to get redirected to
On the live site, clicking on the link causes you to get an error about
passing a request that the server did not know how to deal with. Again,
this is keeping me from being able to test the global header change, so we
need to get it fixed up.
I can't seem to duplicate this error message... both webqa and the live site are
taking me to the correct page (/products/software/linux/rhl7_new_features.html).
Perhaps this was already taken care of by someone else?
No, still getting this. It is not that I am getting taken to the wrong page, it
is that I get redirected to "app.webqa.redhat.com" This is bad. Users should
never get access to app.webqa (or app[1-4].rwc) directly. The page which comes
up is indeed correct, just being served from the wrong machine.
but.. but... the links are relative, not absolute, so once the page is actually in the live environment, it should take the users to the proper page on
www.redhat.com. Or am I not understanding this correctly?
We're not changing the way we do these form actions <form action="/apps/redirect.apm" method=get> with the new server configuration, are we?
I don't know what is happening with the code, but currently on the live site I
get the problem that I detail above. This page is indeed trying to do something
odd that it should not be trying to do. If the user attempts to go through this
link while connected to a SSL session, then they are going to get this error.
We cannot have that.
On the live site, I cannot duplicate this error. In the QA environment I see the redirect happening but I do not get and error off the live site that anything
unusual is happening.
To see this error on the live site, make sure that you are surfing with SSL
enabled. So, connect to
https://www.redhat.com/products/software/linux/rhl7_standard.html, then click on
the 'Go' button to link to the Enhancements and New Features section. Will get
an error telling you that "Your browser sent a request that the server could not
our redirector was using hostname to determine fully qualified name for
redirects. I've put in an re to trap app. and app[1-3].rwc ( also
app[1-3].rwc-colo ) . The fix is on webqa.
Now I get the same error on webqa that I am getting on the live site. This
needs to be fixed for the case where the user is surfing a secure link and
clicks on this button. So, connect to
important that you establish a SSL connection) Then click on the button to go
to the 'Enhancements and Features' section. Will get an error screen talking
about a bad request, stating that the browser passed a request that the server
did not know how to handle. This needs to be fixed ASAP.
OK, I think I got the https part now. I've tested http and https, and also
non-form-based usage of the redirector.
This is indeed fixed on webqa. Closing out this issue.
