Spaces in URLs... Ack!

Added by Bogus Exception over 10 years ago

Learned experts:

I am serving svn from VisualSVN Server, and when you browse with it to a repo-or even a dir under a repo, you can paste it into redmine as a subversion target url, and it will serve up that sub-directory really well! No need to open things up at the root of the repo.

BUT... I ran into a problem when I copied and pasted this URL:

https://DEV06:8443/svn/Crystal/Crystal/Crystal Server

(remine & the repo are on the same box, so local host-only-no-domain is ok)

error:
_
404

The entry or revision was not found in the repository.

Back_

..Problem is, any URL with no spaces is no problem at all, and they are all using the same credentials with no errors. So what is the magic sauce? Things I've already tried:

- quote all parts of the URL, including the whole URL
- escaping the space with \
- escaping the space with _
- escaping the space with ^ (DOS scripts use this)

Now as I write this, I am thinking that I do not restart the mongrel services (I'm on windows), or apache in between attempts...

What are your thoughts?

TIA!

Oh... and I've also tried %20 (percent 20)...
