Powered by Interchange version 5.7.0


Enables processing of HTTP server redirects.


AcceptRedirect Yes

This is a Yes or No directive.  The default is No.


This directive is only available for use in the global (interchange.cfg) configuration file, and will affect all websites running under the Interchange installation.  It will not work in a website's local (catalog.cfg) configuration file. 


This directive enables the processing of HTTP server redirects, allowing Interchange to handle ErrorDocument files etc. on behalf of the Apache web server.  For instance, if you have the following in Apache's httpd.conf file:

ErrorDocument 404 /cgi-bin/foundation

A request for /somedir/index.html that is not found will be equivalent to /cgi-bin/foundation/somedir/index.html, and the client will find the page to be indistinguishable from a page served directly from Apache.



Caution should be taken not to enable Apache's ErrorDocument directive to redirect to Interchange globally, as it would render you subject to a possible denial-of-service attack using random URLs, such as from a flood of MS Windows "Code Red" attacks.  It is recommended that you enable it only for specific directories, as Apache or another HTTP server will stand up much better under such a flood.
