login page redirection URL apache problem

    I have installed version 1.9.8 on a Debian Etch system running apache 2.2.3.   When I access the application via


    It generates a redirection with the following URL (note the escaped characters)


    apache doesn't appear to like the encoded characters; it returns a 404 with the message:

    The requested URL /codestriker/login/form/redirect/http://cdaops.cfa.harvard.edu/codestriker/ was not found on this server.

    If I modify Codestriker::Http::Method::LoginMethod::url (the code path with $self->{cgi_style} = 0) so that the redirected URL is not escaped, apache accepts the resultant URL and I am directed to the login page.

    I'm a bit puzzled by the behavior; I'm not aware of an apache configuration which would cause it.

    Any help would be appreciated.

      What about if you go to the following URL?


      I'd need to see your apache config to help more, but the above URL should be the starting point.  The one you supplied isn't really supported as a starting point - the REST interface which it activated is still experimental.

        Whoops!  False alarm! While simplifying the server configuration file before posting it I discovered that I'd made a transcription error in the apache ScriptAlias directive.  Next time I'll just cut & paste!

        Thanks for the quick reply.  Sorry for the line noise.
