Double Slashes ("//") in URL Does this signify anything, or can I filter them out? Jeremy_H msg:3191670 6:09 am on Dec 18, 2006 (gmt 0) Sometimes I see requests for files like http://www.example.com//file/
Does the double slash "//" mean anything?
I'm thinking about filtering requests with double slashes to just single slashes, but I'm wondering if I'll be messing anything up.
http://www.example.com//file/ => http://www.example.com/file/

If the referer is coming from your own site you seemingly have a link setup incorrectly somewhere in your html documents. blankmonkey msg:3192407 8:15 pm on Dec 18, 2006 (gmt 0)
Dito. When I have seen this, it has been a typo error int he referring document. rkrause msg:3192777 1:28 am on Dec 19, 2006 (gmt 0)
This redundancy can be the result of a miswritten RewriteRule directive in a per-directory context. If you use mod_rewrite, check the RewriteBase. Does the anomaly only occur after a specific file or directory request? Alternatively, does the anomaly only occur with a specific user-agent -- particularly, one that appears to be a robot? If possible, try going to the refering page and examine the source code.
