#4918 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Simpler resolution to ticket 3215, wp_redirect status code on fastcgi

The resolution to ticket #3215 was at source:/trunk/wp-includes/pluggable.php@latest#L420

The code is:
if ( php_sapi_name() != 'cgi-fcgi' )

status_header($status); This causes problems on IIS and some FastCGI setups

header("Location: $location");

This is simpler and works on both mod_php and fast cgi:
header("Location: $location",null,$status);

Any reason why not to use this approach? I've attached a patch.

Also, this approach actually sends the redirect code on fast cgi, the current code does not, it defaults to a 302 redirect.

the 2nd and 3rd parameters are only available for PHP >= 4.3.0, WP's baseline is 4.2

Heres the definition for the status_header() function:

As you see, it checks the version and calls appropriately.

Maybe a similar code structure can be used there as well?

Good point, I hadn't checked that. How about this latest patch instead then?

No way we're touching this so close to release. We can explore this for 2.4, but our experience with this stuff is that when you change anything, you break it for a whole bunch of people.

we're now requiring php 4.3. commit or wontfix?

  • Milestone 2.9 deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This would have us always skipping our status_header() function. We should put whatever logic we need in that function.
