    Anyone else getting 500 Internal Server Errors when they request a pdf file? I have been working wth it pretty closely and can't seem to resolve the issue.

    All mimes, permissions, etc. are set on the box. works on all of my other 2003 standard boxes, but not on any of my psa 6.5 boxes.

    If anyone knows or hears anything, let me know.

    not pef but URL Encode

    Just to make a note and close this one:

    It is not the pdf file it is the space in the name.

    For instance:

    helloworld.pdf works
    hello world.pdf does not

    although this can be normal with some os - windows allows for this and encodes on request like:

    hello+world.pdf or hello%20world.pdf

    this is the problem - the plesk app pool does not allow for proper URL encoding by the server

    --- major issue --- pass a url encoded or non url encoded address from a form to another page - the address has spaces, but the server does not understand the url reqest - and voila a 500 internal server error.

    Update - talked to the Plesk Support team and they are have the Dev team work on the bug right now.
