Consider redirects in local .lighttpd.conf file

This file, located in the home directory of the various tools may contain redirects.

Example line (from persondata tool)

url.rewrite-once += ( "/persondata/p/(.+)" => "/persondata/person.php?title=$1" )

Those lines need to be changed to

url.rewrite-once += ( "/p/(.+)" => "/person.php?title=$1" )

Actually, you need to duplicate those lines until the transition is finished. --Wurgl (talk) 21:32, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for the reminder! I had this in my notes at some point, but it didn't make it to the doc. Special:Diff/1863905 --BryanDavis (talk) 22:30, 21 April 2020 (UTC)

Firefox Plugin NoScript

Some users may use that plugin. It works perfect and happily blocked scripts from toolforge.org, leaving a desperate Wurgl … but I found that problem! --Wurgl (talk) 12:45, 27 May 2020 (UTC)

Cookies

In case your application sets cookies, you need to change the path where that cookie is valid, PHP example code:

document.cookie = "template_editor=" + cval + ";expires=" + date.toUTCString() + "; path=/persondata/vorlagen/";

Change to:

document.cookie = "template_editor=" + cval + ";expires=" + date.toUTCString() + "; path=/vorlagen/";

Thanks for leaving the note about this Wurgl. This is related to News/Toolforge.org#Flask_and_cookies and the "TODO" there to expand the information to cookies in general. --BryanDavis (talk) 19:09, 31 May 2020 (UTC)
