This should be taken into account mostly in cases where websites can be accessed through a URL with a different number of trailing slashes such as a page that can be opened with two or no trailing slashes.
If a pathname does not have a trailing slash then it points to a file.
As a consequence, much confusion has arisen about the purpose and importance of trailing slashes on collection resources. It is common for users to forget the trailing slash on a resource, and common for web-servers to assist users, when they make this mistake, to redirect them to the URI with the trailing slash automatically.
In fact this practice is so pervasive, that for the vast majority of users, a resource URI with or without a trailing slash is treated as a synonym.
They are considered two URIs that point to the same resource, using either one is fine.
However this understanding is not quite correct. It is more correct to understand that the resource without the trailing slash does not exist at all.
In a multi-tiered architecture, where the application server generating a resource may be at some remove from the public endpoint that the consumer of an API accesses, determining the correct public URI to generate in a resource can become cumbersome.
More on this below. With relative URIs this problem is mitigated, the location of a resource is expressed relative to the location of the current resource, and the client is able to turn that relative location into an absolute location using URI resolution.
By needlessly repeating the fully qualified URI, you create more work for yourself, if the fully qualified URI has to change for any reason. You might expect it to be http: It actually says the absolute location is http: If a client attempts to retrieve http: If it is not already clear, placing a trailing slash on a collection resource is not optional.
It is critical to relative URIs being resolved correctly. RFC is one of the foundational specifications of the web and as the example above demonstrates, collection resources are expected to have a trailing slash.
I think developers encounter problems trying to get relative URIs working properly through their lack of understanding of the mechanics and then err on the side of caution and switch to using fully qualified URIs throughout.
If we were to retrieve content of the blog post it would look like this:I am processing a TreeView of directories and files. A user can select either a file or a directory and then do something with it.
This requires me to have a method which performs different actions. I am sorry my friend. Somehow I missed your response.
It should have been: RewriteRule ^.*)/$ /$1 [R,L] So, you missed the / And it is also used to remove the trailing slash from URLs just like the one that I gave you earlier.

's are not difficult for me, but handling the code for a logic to re-route requests for "URL" to "URL/" is something I dont know how to do.
I can manually or rel canonical my CMS pages on Magento everytime, but that defeats the purpose or the automation in htaccess I am trying to get working.

Hello all, I'm needing to covert an ISAPI rule that adds a trailing slash to the end of a url to an iRule, however the tricky part here is i'll need to add in a few exceptions URLs.
