XWIKI does not support backslash (/) in page title


I have created a page with a title that has backslash in it (eg Procedures/Process). The page is created, but when I try to access the page it shows a broken page with error HTTP Status 400 - Bad request. page_with_backslash

Now I cannot even neither delete nor rename the page. Some help would be really appreciable.


Hi, see https://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Documentation/AdminGuide/Installation/InstallationWAR/InstallationTomcat/#HAllowing222F22and225C22inpagenames

/ is not a backslash - / is a forward slash. The \ character is a backslash.

Thanks for our post. Unfortunately I am unable to make the correction.:frowning:

If you have Apache HTTPD in front of Tomcat then it’s also affected by this behavior. See https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/core.html#allowencodedslashes.
