UseAutomaticPathSessions doesn't seem to work on IIS,
using either wkcgi.exe or WebKit.cgi. I suspect it's
something to do with how redirects are handled.

    Still broken in CVS as of 2003-01-15. It looks like IIS is
    doing a server-side redirect, so the address in the browser
    never gets updated with the session ID embedded.

    Actually, I'm not quite sure why this works with Apache
    since I would also expect Apache to do a server-side
    redirect in this case -- redirecting to a URL that starts
    with a "/". Nevertheless it does work with my Apache 2.0
    installation on Windows.

     
  • After 7 years, I'm pleased to fix this bug which is the last open issue on Webware's bug trackers :-)

    In fact IIS handles redirects internally when the URL has no scheme, as was the case in Webware. Fixed in r7625 by always setting scheme and hostname in the redirect URL.
