Wrong redirection after submitting a form with HST or EasyForms

When you are redirected to a wrong port number, or wrong context path after submitting a form with HST or EasyForms, one of the following things might be the cause:

  • Missing write access to /formdata (hst:formdatacontainer) for the sitewriter user
  • Wrong hst:virtualhosts configuration

Missing write access to /formdata

Make sure the sitewriter user has write access to the correct nodes. See Setting HST siteuser permissions

Wrong hst:virtualhosts configuration

We need to distinguish between two use cases:

  • Requesting the application directly without proxy
  • Running behind httpd or some proxy

Requesting the application directly without proxy

Make sure the properties  hst:showport and hst:showcontextpath are both set to true

Running behind httpd or some proxy

Depending on your httpd settings, set hst:showport and/or hst:showcontextpath to true or false
