Uniadmin .htaccess permanent redirect issues for sync URL

Postby lunzet » Mon Feb 11, 2008 5:51 pm

I have recently moved my uniadmin install to another subfolder and updated the uniadmin config. In order to redirect all existing installations to the new location i have implemented the following .htaccess redirect:

Code: Select all
Redirect permanent /uniadmin http://mydomain/bm/uniadmin


Unfortunately I have now found that the Sync URL for the settings is not updated with the current (correct) value.

Old sync URL:
Code: Select all
http://mydomain/uniadmin/interface.php
p

New Sync URL:
Code: Select all
http://mydomain/bm/uniadmin/interface.php


For now I have moved a copy of uniadmin into the root dir again just to update the Sync URL string to the new one.

Does anyone know why this redirect would cause this kind of issue? Can someone reproduce?

Thanks

It may be possible that, during the install, UA writes out values to a database table, one of which is the base URL/path for UA.

UU may not follow redirects

Thanks for the answers. So the only way to move the uniadmin install is the way I have implemented the workaround and watch the logs getting less activity on the "old" location...right?

I suppose
Although Matt could update UU (hint, hint)

Another idea is to fake the output interface.php for the required settings
Open UU, and look at the debug tab, it shows all the requests to UA
You could then copy those requests, and have a new interface.php just output the data directly

Give me the debug tab and I might be able to build you a new file

Thanks for the help.

Attached please find the debug output after enabling the redirect and switching the sync url back to the old url:
Code: Select all
http://turbolooser.dyndns.org/uniadmin/interface.php

Just for tke kicks, I put this URL in my UniULoader.

It's synced all my setting to your setup in no-time - I got even some of your (german !!) addons as a bonus - your PvPlog was more recent then mine : thanks for the sugestion :wink:

But : it worked - it looks to me that your server side is ok.
Saw no errors.

Here is a redirect interface.php
You should be able to replace /uniadmin/interface.php with this and delete all the other files

Keep it there for a month and you should be ok
