  • Friendly URL names and application names confusion

    After a week of trying to deploy an application to a client's remote server, I may be starting to sound terse, so apologies in advance.

    The latest issue was that the project, which tested OK in the development environment, on a VM that I maintain for testing, and on my web-server, was creating 404 errors on the client's server when couple of applications tried to call other applications.

    I eventually worked out that the problem was wrong application directory names& URL calls were created when "Friendly URL names" were in use. For example, the application in the development system is "ctrl_showme". The friendly URL is "Show_me".

    On deployment the "ctrl_showme" application directory is created as "Show_me", but the call from other application is to "ctrl_showme", resulting in a 404. No amount of code regeneration or re-deployment would fix it. In the end I had to take out the friendly URLs or manually rename directories after deployment

    So, is this deployment behaviour by design, a bug, or simply intended to drive us crazy?

    Hmm, I was just about to start using Friendly URL feature. Has this been fixed ?
