Subject Re: Apache::ASP and post-POST redirect
Date Fri, 07 Jul 2000 16:34:48 GMT
Uh, I found what it was!

After receiving Joshua's email, I experimented some more and while trying 
to get the simplest possible configuration disabled the 'Filter' flag 
(which I had turned on because I used Apache::SSI in conjunction with 
ASP).   And this did the trick.  As soon as filtering was gone, redirects 
started working again.

Hmm, I don't think I ever mentioned that ASP post-POST redirects just all 
of a sudden stopped working for me.  A browser would send a POST request 
and never get anything back.  The logs showed that the request was 
processed to the point of $Response->Redirect, but nothing would ever come 
out from the other side.  The server was simply closing the connection 
without sending any data back to the client.  I did find a hack that made 
redirects work by replacing ASP's Redirect with the following lines:

        Apache->print("HTTP/1.0 301 Moved Permanantly\n");

(where the last line was simply used to force apache to close the 
connection) This worked as expected.

I swear this used to work before with filters on.  Did something change in 


PS I'm running Apache/1.3.12 and mod_perl/1.24 (all hand-compiled) on 
RedHat 6.2.  Apache::ASP v.0.19 (I did try the newest version, it behaved 
the same), Apache::Filter v.1.011 and Apache::SSI v.2.13
