Internet Explorer Not Cooperating for Apache Login
I have a directory that is password-protected via apache. I have a "pretty" login so that users can enter their username and password from the web site instead of the usual/ugly apache prompt. Basically, PHP (but it doesn't matter what language) takes the form input and redirects to the destination using a format like this:
Everything works perfectly in Firefox, but in Internet Explorer, I get the following error:
"Windows cannot find 'http://username:firstname.lastname@example.org'. Check the spelling and try again."
What gives? Thanks for any help!
P.S. The PHP is irrelevant. I get the same result if I bypass that step and just enter the redirect URL directly into the browser.
