RewriteCond Using QUERY_STRING That Contains a "+" Character Is Not Processed Correctly

(Doc ID 2395513.1)

Last updated on JULY 05, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version to [Release 12c]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When using RewriteCond and RewriteRule to redirect requests by Regular Expressions, redirects are not
occurring as expected when there is a "+" used.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Add a similar configuration as the following to the httpd.conf or other configuration file used by OHS.

2. A request to https://hostname:port//business/solutions?LOB=Cloud+and+Hosting+Services is not being redirected to /business/cloud-and-hosting.
