Lets start with the bug:
When requesting a download link via the Downloads page the link that is sent via e-mail is invalid. It is missing a slash.
1) Enter a e-mail on the Downloads page (https://www.saturdaymp.com/downloads) that has already purchased Mini-Compressor.
2) E-mail should be sent but the link in the e-mail is incorrect. For example the link I got was:
There should be a slash after the https://www.saturdaymp.com.
But when I looked closer at the actual e-mail, the link was correct. It looked like:
It had the slash after the “.com” but was missing the www and didn’t have HTTPS. At first I thought the problem was the missing www but I was wrong. The problem was in the redirect from HTTP to HTTPS. Lets take a look at the apache site config file for Saturday MP where the redirect lives.
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName www.saturdaymp.com Redirect permanent / https://www.saturdaymp.com </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:443> # HTTPS config settings ... </VirtualHost>
Notice the slash is missing at the end of the redirect? That is the problem. To fix it add a backslash so the redirect looks like:
Redirect permanent / https://www.saturdaymp.com/
After you add the backslash don’t forget to reboot your webserver, which I did. You will also have to clear your browser cache, which I didn’t do. It took me another hour to figure out the above fix actually did work because I didn’t clear out my browser cache. Always clear our your browser cache when testing websites.
P.S. – For those not into 80’s hair bands Slash is the one with hat, curly hair, and memorable guitar licks. The opening to Sweet Child O’ Mine is actually a guitar exercise Slash used for practice and warm-up. Finally make sure you listen to the uncut version. In the cut version almost a minute of Slash’s guitar solo is missing.
