Uh-oh, we've got a language problem.* Do you mean

#1 Sometimes I have to restart the server while I am trying to load up my index page


#2 When I restart the server, it sends the index page to my home computer.

Are we talking about the real-life physical server that your www site lives on, or an imitation server that lives on your own computer?

When you say "download" do you mean "open in browser" or "send to wherever downloaded files normally go"?

* I'm not randomly guessing. In Hindi and related languages, present participles are used even more than in English. So "is downloading" may mean "is in the act of downloading" (as in English) or it may mean "begins to download".

When i restart the server ,it's sending the index page into my local home system.

A download box is poped and asking us to save the file(just like a normal down load file).

:: peering into crystal ball ::

When you first set up the server, you expressly told it to do this because it's an easy way to verify that the server is working. Now, if only you could remember how you told it to send you your index file, and how to make it stop ...

Hi Guys,

I am also facing the same issue. When I view the downloaded file ,it contains full of junk data like

xÿ”³˜éi‰þÊñtB}áu:Û/Ÿm_§qLø9ŽH]°Ò¬iY«Ì”Ö2?Z¬*ú[ôÍö뫽“Ÿ©œ XÄRî]¾[€á9Kå œ‚üR•²:½¸æZ§ßŽ!Vq6bR)·Þ®[c­¦Ù÷ÐÙä ¶e•¾Ë¦…ŠÀYKc^Žè¯îBË«[ù«ë+ý

I was unable to replicate this when was hitting directly to application server.

My apache webserver version is 2.2.3

The connector we configured is mod_proxy_ajp.
I am really not sure where I can look into it.
Can someone help me out please.

First guess: You've got UTF-8 or UTF-16 text being interpreted as a one-byte encoding such as Latin-1. (This is always my first assumption when I see garbage text.) But it's hard to pin down without a clear beginning and ending point-- especially once the Forums have done their own job on the encoding :)

But I guess that's secondary to your main problem anyway.

I agree with you..but if it is the case,it should come everytime.
It only coming randomly.
