Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE) – Ruby on Rails

I managed to break my app again while playing around with the routes and a few redirects:

No data received
Unable to load the webpage because the server sent no data.
Here are some suggestions:
Reload this webpage later.
Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.


This wasn’t one I had encountered before and unfortunately Google couldn’t give me anything to cheat off. Luckily, a quick review of the server log revealed the following message just before it closed the connection:

[2011-12-03 21:09:05] ERROR URI::InvalidURIError: the scheme http does not accept registry part: (or bad hostname?)


From this error message it became clear that I needed to place a forward slash before my redirect path:

#Redirect to edit location path      
redirect_to '/locations/edit'


Hopefully this’ll be able to help someone else out there, Good Luck!

    Thanks, I also had the same issue and this fixed it!! I do think that people using Firefox will not find this. I had tested my project in chrome and used chromes error message. Firefox didn’t give me anything specific. Anyway, thanks a lot!
