Description Joerg Heyne 2007-11-27 06:06:32 UTC
Apache configured as a reverse Proxy-Server does not handel URL-Requests with
a semicolon correct.


Webbrowser -> Apache
Url is encoded as "Test%3b.doc"

Apache Reverse-Proxy -> Backendserver
URL is not encoded: "Test;.doc"

As mentioned in Bug #41798 the URL-Encoding in mod_proxy has a general
problem. This seems to be fiexed for "/" but is not fixed for a ";".

What version did you test?  This should be fully fixed in trunk and 2.2-current,
and hence in 2.2.7 and up.
Comment 2 Joerg Heyne 2007-11-27 07:47:20 UTC
Tested with snapshot-tar.gz-version (witch does not compile correctly because 
of apr error). An backported to 2.2.6.

When will be 2.2.7 released?

Erm, that doesn't tell me whether it's a version including the fix.  FWIW, it
works fine for me, so if any version incorporating the fix to 41798 (Nov.20th in
2.2) fails for you, we need to exactly what version.

When someone releases it.

Please have a look on the dev list for that. It is the best place to get this

Presumed fixed; please reopen with details if not.
