Mongrel/webrick redirect_to discrepancy


#1

hi,

i’m running mongrel behind lighttpd proxy server, i redirect /xyz URLs
to port 8081so i can get dynamic content. sometimes this content
redirects e.g lighttpd config.

“/content/” =>
((
“host” =>“my IP address here”,
“port” => 8081
)) ,

when I use rails redirect_to and webrick as the server i get the
desired transation of the URLS with no sign of 8081 in the redirected
URL

http://myserver/content/redirected_url

when I use mongrel, the redirected URL contains the 8081 port,

http://myserver:8081/content/redirected_url

thanks

BD.

Let me look at this. I believe the whole way the redirects are done via
the
CGI library is not correct. It looks like WEBrick may be doing some
form of
correction. For example, CGI apparently uses a header of “location:” on
the
302 response, but WEBrick uses “Location:” and changes the response.

I’ve got a test case for this now so I’ll sort it out. Thanks for the
specific details on your setup.
