#523 closed defect (invalid)

XML-RPC server is not protocol compliant

Reported by: mpalmer@… Owned by: Alec Thomas
Priority: normal Component: XmlRpcPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


I think this log entry says it all:

localhost - - [19/Jul/2006 16:02:41] "POST /trac/login/xmlrpc HTTP/1.0" 303 -

Perhaps with a note that, AFAICT, HTTP/1.0 does not know about the 303 See Other response code.

This is an artifact of the way Trac authentication works, so there's not that much that can be done.

In fact, this is really an issue with Trac itself and should be raised on the main Trac site.

Hmm, OK. I'll report the issue on the main Trac site. I've never noticed Trac proper throw a 303 (it's usually 302) when I log in via a web browser, though. Also, if I login and I get redirected, where do I actually send the real XMLRPC request to? I'm having trouble with requests just plain-up dying instead of completing properly ("Connection reset by peer", for example), and I noticed this problem as a side-effect of my attempts to debug the main problem. Basically, any authenticated XMLRPC request dies. Utterly heartbreaking.

I think I've encountered this before. Some of the Trac backends have issues, and some work :(

I'd suggest documenting all this in the ticket you raise.

comment:5 Changed 11 years ago by mpalmer@…

I'm not adverse to switching backends if it'll solve the problem. I'm using tracd at the moment; do you have any recommendations for which one works Real Nice?

FYI, this did end up being a bug in trac, specifically LoginModule. cmlenz fixed it in changeset:3581 3581
