Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.


  1. The perl script reside in the top-level directory.
  2. The general path setting ScriptUrlPath is set to /


  • several links at the page bottom (i.e. More Actions and History) are broken
  • other links at the page bottom (i.e. Edit) function as expected

This is an extreme edge case; it is quite hard to imagine why you would want the scripts to reside in /.

My inclination is to document this as an exception i.e. disallow / as the ScriptUrlPath. Can you give a convincing argument for why we shouldn't do that?


It is an edge case, agreed. That's the reason for the initial normal priority. Anyhow I thought I should report this bug, since some links work properly, some don't. I am fine with your suggested solution. -- MichaelRau - 08 Jul 2006
OK. Dropping priority to normal.


A scriptUrlPath of / is actually ok, but if you take the new help literally, then it isn't allowed. Since the alternative is an empty string, which is also disallowed, then everything works as expected.
