Fixed In:

Opened: Aug 25, 2014
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

The DB variable that's turning this feature on\off is: AVR.dosl7.parse_path_info. By default AVR.dosl7.parse_path_info is set to disable which means that if URI is /a/b.php/c/d?p1=v1 The old way is used and only parameters are being removed which leaves us with /a/b.php/c/d . If AVR.dosl7.parse_path_info is set to enable the new parsing is being used, meaning path info is being ignored thus the above URI is turned into /a/b.php .
