Expedition logs out on page refresh

L0 Member

After upgrading Expedition to 1.2.57 we are seeing behavior where upon page refresh while in the Expedition tool we are booted back out to the login screen.  Full disclosure, patching Ubuntu seemed to have broken apache2 so we had to delete apache, then run the Expedition installer script again to get it running again.  We can login and see our projects but when refreshing the page we are being logged out.

I’m wondering if it is something with Apache’s configuration.

Hey this is actually a pretty common thing.

What's happening is you need to get your apache server to ignore any nested paths and just send all requests /* to root instead. That way your front-end javascript can pick up the route on the client-side and display the correct view.

This is sometimes referred to as "HTML5 Mode" in different webservers.

In apache the way you do this is add a rule like the following:

  RewriteEngine On 

  RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI} -f [OR]

  RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}%{REQUEST_URI} -d

  RewriteRule ^ - [L]

 

  RewriteRule ^ /index.html [L]

 

What this does is to tell Apache to serve any files that exist, but if they dont exist, just serve /index.html rather than a 404 not found.
