While doing a GET operation on /projects/analistas/browser/Baselines, Trac issued an internal error.

I'm trying to migrate some TRAC projects from a old 0.12dev-r7634 to a new 0.12.5 installation

Request parameters:


User agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux i686; rv:18.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/18.0

System Information

TRAC 0.12.5

Hi jomae,

i have made the following changes on "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/trac/web/api.py" and now works:

    def path_info(self):
        """Path inside the application"""
        path_info = self.environ.get('PATH_INFO', '')
            return unicode(path_info, 'utf-8')
#        except UnicodeDecodeError:
#            raise HTTPNotFound(_("Invalid URL encoding (was %(path_info)r)",
#                                 path_info=path_info))
        except (TypeError, UnicodeDecodeError):
                return path_info
