On my new dedi, I noticed a relatively annoying hindrance.
For the domain paumadou.com, there is a network blog called ulysse, present in paumadou.com/ulysse/
However, from my experience and on top of all from my blogs browsing, if a first time visitor only opens paumadou.com/ulysse (without the final slash /), the visitor is redirected to paumadou.com
I can assume this matches my log entries with
[error] [client 188.8.131.52] File does not exist: /home/paumadou/public_html/ulysse
However, on the second attempt, loading either /ulysse or /ulysse/ works.
And if the first time visitor starts with /ulysse/ then it's OK, the network blog will load.
I may have left something behind, I was running short of "never been there before" web browsers to do the testing ;)
Please, would you have an idea as to the reason behind it ?
And, more importantly, about how to avoid it ?
(tech info : I simply copied the files and database of that domain from the shared hosting where everything was working perfectly, to the new dedi in which everything equally works perfectly, save this trailing slash bug I just discovered. No funky homemade htaccess of sorts, it's the default stuff.)
Thank you very much if you can help ! :)
