I am supporting a java application which has a search bar which matches the keywords and gets the results from the cache.
The application runs in Tomcat and has a Apache web server too.
There is an issue while searching aaa' the special character ' is causing the problem and i get to
You don't have permission to access /xx/xx/xxxx.jsp
The search is fine in local setup with the abscence of Web Server. As i saw some posts suggesting the issue could be caused by Web server config.
What are the possibilities?
Your help is highly appreciated.
The issue was not an issue it is a secutity constraint by the apache web server or FireWall rule to protect from cross site sctipting or sql injection using %27 (single quote). I used POST method instead of using GET method to send request. That is the solution for my case.
