Topic: HTTP_REFERER error occurs with nonstandard HTTP Port
Hey, guys; I've been having errors with HTTP_REFERER up the wazoo, and I've not had any luck at all fixing them.
My forum is at the root of a subdomain specifically set up for the forum.
I tried a Base URL of (according to MySQL) "http://x.x.org", then "http://x.x.org:8000", and when neither worked, I figured it was an error at my end. I changed the Database collation too, hoping that'd somehow change something, but to no avail.
As I'm making this post, "http://x.x.org:8000" is my Base URL (again, according to MySQL itself), and Firefox claims "http://x.x.org:8000/admin_groups.php?edit_group=1" is the refering URL. I also verified this with Apache's access log:
216.232.X.X - - [23/Jan/2007:22:18:14 -0800] "GET /admin_groups.php?edit_group=1 HTTP/1.1" 200 5143 "http://X.X.org:8000/admin_groups.php" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/188.8.131.52" 216.232.X.X - - [23/Jan/2007:22:18:22 -0800] "POST /admin_groups.php HTTP/1.1" 200 2297 "http://X.X.org:8000/admin_groups.php?edit_group=1" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:184.108.40.206) Gecko/20061204 Firefox/220.127.116.11"
Since I can see the referer showing up in my access log (I think? ), I can assume there's nothing stripping them, right? So what's the problem here, fellows?
And before you ask, I've restarted Apache religiously when making changes, as well completely scrapping the forum a few times.
I also searched, and found only this...
