we had resently updated 2 machines to cpanel version 11.18.6-R24533
since this update, cpanel will prefix the "redirect to" url (/frontend/x3/mime/redirect.html) with an extra "http://" .
anyone else haveing this issue?


note:all cpanel redirects in version 11.18.6-S24255 seem to work correctly.

If you are forced to have an http:// in front of everything then the rule was entered before that problem was fixed.

You can tell also that this was an "old" rule if there are special characters that are URI encoded and/or it is not surrounded by double quotes.

these were new rules entered today.

when entering the "redirect to" string, cpanel java script insists I use http://whatever.... when the request is complete, it says everything was fine, untill i try to visit the redirected area, and when i go back to the redirect control area and view my current and newly addad redirects, all new redirects have http://http:// at the beginning. old redirects remain unchanged and working fine.

Sounds like theme was updated but the tree was not, can you submit a ticket 'ATTN Dan' referencing this forum thread so i can verify and resolve the problem?

thanks!
