I have a controler ImageController with 3 actions view, restrict, thumbnail
Each action accept a parameter filePath which is the path to the image to be rendered
The server is Apache.
I define the following url rule
'image/<action:(view|restrict|thumbnail)><filePath>' => 'image/<controller>,
using the following url fails:
as well as
Of course, I could use the * char (or any other char) and change it into / in the controller, but it’s not very satisfying.
My question is how could I use the forward / in parameter values ?
in fact I was misled by permissions in controller
The problem is slightly different. It works with / in the parameter but not when the / is urlencoded (%2F). It means that when using Url::to, the produced URL doesn’t work.
If nothing works then simply use base64 encode / decode for file path.
Have u tried the traditional way?
Because pretty URL meant segregating the query strings by "/" .
I hope somewhat my suggestion helped you.
Thank you for answer.
Apparently it works with traditional Url (not pretty) after removing the rules
But I cannot use pretty Url in this case
If you cannot use traditional URL, I suggest to use base64 encode / decode the filePath
You can make use of the JS -> https://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Web/API/WindowBase64/Base64_encoding_and_decoding , in case needed confusion in client side for encoding and decoding.
