    [Solved] Login and Assets-Files in IE8 Link to this post

    Hi there,
    since a few days i got some problem with one of my customers Silverstripe-Hosting (hosting at Strato in Germany):

    If I watch the site via Opera or Firefox all of the assets-files are shown. Additionally the administration-login works with no problem.

    If I watch the site via Internet Explorer 8 all of the images and files, uploaded via assets-management ar not shown. The path for the files is correct. Additionally the administration-login fails, because i got redirected after entering my login-data to the address ".../Security/Security/LoginForm". Normally that should be ".../Security/LoginForm".

    In my base-htaccess-file i got "RewriteBase /". Also i got the "<base href"-tag in my page.ss-file.

    One thing that came into my mind was the missing "Slash" for the path of the assets-files. But how can i tell Silvertripe to put a single "/" into my assets-files i´m putting on the site?

    If you want to take a look at the problem please visit http://www.geiger-personalconsult.de (for example the Image under the menue "vita")

    Maybe someone can help me out here.

    Thank you in advance for your effort,
    Otto

    You login via /Security/login.

    I know, but it´s redirecting me to ".../Security/Security/LoginForm"

    I think it´s because the previous "/" is missing. At the image-path AND also at the form-action-path. So IE8 is not using the root-path (e.g. http://www.geiger-personalconsult.de/), instead it´s using "http://www.geiger-personalconsult.de/Security/".

    I have no clue why this is happening.

    As you can see here (http://blogs.msdn.com/ieinternals/archive/2009/07/27/Bugs-in-the-IE8-Lookahead-Downloader.aspx) there is a bug in IE8 called "The BASE Bug". But as you can read it should be fixed already.

    Also i´m confused, that it has to do with the bug mentioned above, because other silverstripe-installations on other hosting-partners do not have this problem.

    Still have no clue

    Problem solved:

    Obviously the file "Page.ss" was edited with an editor who put cryptic special characters before the starting <html>-tag (maybe some UTF-8?). In my editor that characters weren´t visible. Only copying the source-code from the IE8 into my editor made that charactes visible to me.

    After i cleaned the file "Page.ss" and uploaded it, the site is rendering without any problem again.

    Best regards,
    Otto
