New site that we're building in 2.7 is having a weird issue which I don't appear to be able to get any log information about.

we have http://site.com/c/content-url-title-here and if you try accessing this URL we get a 500 Server Error.

However, if we manually add a trailing slash to make the URL http://site.com/c/content-url-title-here/ it loads the page fine.

I can't see anything in the Changelogs that would indicate a specific 2.7 issue around this, has anyone come across this issue?

For Info, this is my .htaccess:

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-l
RewriteRule (.*) /index.php/$1 [L]

I've never had this issue before and none of my apache logs are giving any errors at all. Anyone able to advise?

Please Ignore this question... the issue was somewhere between the keyboard and the chair!




The "content-url-title-here" might be a reserved word. I've had it before with some hosting setups that they have a high-level htaccess file redirecting to a control panel or web service.

I've had issue lately with Option +FollowSymLinks - my htaccess is also a bit different

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond $1 !^/index.php
RewriteCond $1 !.(css|js|png|jpe?g|gif|ico)$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]
  • doesn't make any difference... Sep 17, 2013 at 10:55
  • could you modify the htaccess to add a trailing slash by default? Sep 17, 2013 at 11:08
  • well thats what I thought, but doesn't appear to work either - unless I'm doing it wrong :p Sep 17, 2013 at 11:10
  • it's not really a solution though - just treats the symptom Sep 17, 2013 at 11:19
