Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)

Hi! I am attempting to switch my hosting account on one of my
websites. The host gives me "shell access" information, but I can't
find where to enter it in Dreamweaver. The result is when
attempting to access the website I get the message "Bad Request
(Invalid Hostname)". Can anybody help me? I would appreciate

You need the FTP information not the shell access
information. Do you have

  • Why can't I use the Yahoo! search function? I get the following message: "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)"

    I cannot search on Yahoo! but Google works fine (inasmuch as you can trust Google)
    The simplest of searches yields "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)" on the first try. I have gone through Yahoo!'s trouble shooting process w/o results.

    Yahoo search engine still doesn't work, and Google does. Other programs on my computer are:
    Norton Internet Security;
    Norton Utilities;
    Verizon In-home agent; (I don't use it, but have a Verizon wireless router);
    Windows Explorer (I reset it but still can't use Yahoo search even though Google works fine)
    I am paranoid that some how the evil Google has sabotaged Yahoo search! HELP!!!

  • Cant access search engines anymore. it always comes up with: bad request, invalid hostname

    for some reasen my laptop started to connect to the internet via my univerisities proxy server. today, however, web sites didnt load at all, instead it said: cant connect to proxy server.
    so i changed the network/proxy settings by deselecting 'use a proxy server for your lan'.
    consequently i was able to acces most web sites, apart from search engines. if i try to do so, it always comes up with: bad request, invalid hostname.
    what can i do?

    btw i have windows 7 :)

  • What does "bad request (invalid hostname)" mean? thanks!

    each time i try to access, i get the error message "bad request (invalid host)". I have accessed the site numerous times before. have tried it on IE, without www and still no success. is it their server? thanks!

    I also have this problem. It usually attacks search engines such as Google, Yahoo and Bing. I am searching for ways to fix it right now, I will reply if I find anything.

  • Intermittent 400 Bad Request - Invalid Verb SharePont 2010

    This is a long shot that someone has seen this or maybe can give some hints on finding the problem.
    We are getting a rare (once per day) 400 Bad Request - Invalid Verb error in SharePoint 2010 during a POST - this has happened when adding a ListItem.  Once the page is refreshed it works perfectly.
    We have an on-premise instance of SharePoint 2010, it happens on all browsers.
    The request header looks exactly the same for a succesful update as athe error. Any ideas where to start?
    The response in Fiddler is

  • 400   Bad Request - Invalid path /b2c/secure was requested

    I have two jsp pages. first page is included as a link in one of the inc.jsp in B2C application.
    This page has few input fields and upon submit button. I get error message
    400 Bad Request - Invalid path /b2c/secure was requested
    the action tag written in config.xml is like:
    <action path="/b2c/xyz" type="">
              <forward name="success" path="/b2c/Page2.jsp"/>
              <forward name="failure" path="/b2c/Page2.jsp"/>
    in web.xml:
    Please let me know if you could help me with the needful. Appreciate your earliest response.

    Hi Bharathi,
    If you are embedding a link in jsp where you are directly calling another jsp, its always better to code it like this
    <a href="<isa:webappsURL name="/b2c/Page1.jsp"/>" target="_new">
    There is no need to make any changes in web.xml file.
    If in your inc.jsp you want to call an action class on click on a link than call a javascript method onclick on that link
    test() is a javascript method where you will call your action class like
    function test() {
           isaTop().parent.location.href="<isa:webappsURL name='/b2c/'/>";
    Changes in config.xml should be like
    <action path="/b2c/xyz1" type="">
              <forward name="success" path="/b2c/Page2.jsp"/>
              <forward name="failure" path="/b2c/Page2.jsp"/>
    Make use of "<isa:webappsURL name='/test/test.jsp'/>" and it will work. Hope this helps you.

  • IISProxy URL - Bad Request (Invalid URL) in refresh option

    Hello SDN colleagues,
    We are facing a very strange behavior in SAP EP 6, let me try to explain as clear as I can.
    First, the EP version:
    J2EE Engine 6.40 PatchLevel 89291.313
    KnowledgeManagementCollaboration (NW04 SPS09)
    We have activated Windows Authentication Integration through IISProxy (version, it's working fine and the portal users are being authenticated automatically once the're logged in the MS network, using the url
    The problem: when the user clicks the "Refresh" option in the Page Title Bar, the portal displays the message "Bad Request (Invalid URL)." This is happening with all pages, and the worst - in the UWL iview when the user tries to launch a transaction.
    But if the user logs on using the authentication form - url - there is no error.
    It seems that the problem is related to the mapping made by IISProxy, after logging the user and redirecting to the portal it's just change the url to the standard (port 50000) then it works fine.
    Here is the mapping done in the iisproxy xml file:
    <ISAPI-config version="1.6">
       <filter name="IisProxy filter" authentication="forward" />
          <extension name="IisProxy extension" />
            <mapping name="IisProxy Portal" >
           <compress-types>text/html, text/plain</compress-types>
    Any idea ? Is it possible to keep the standard url ?
    Thanks in advance, and regards.
    Fernando R Cervantes

    Hi Fernando,
    This sounds like SAP Note 734462:
    Microsoft Link (also avilable in the note):;en-us;820129
    The value to change is UrlSegmentMaxLength (We changed from 260 to 1000).
    A restart to the whole server is required for the change to take affect (since it's a change to the registry).
    Hope that helps,

  • Portal Favorites Bad Request Invalid URL

    Recently upgraded from EP6.0 SP13 to SP16.
    When selecting a link, folder or document from within Portal Favorites - Bad Request Invalid URL error is displayed.
    I have changed the Isolation Mode to URL on Portal Favorites iView - but this has not fixed the problem.
    Any thoughts?

    Probelm is fixed as per SAP Note 815344.
    Go to the definition of the affected iViews in the Portal Content Catalog. You can find the following parameters there: 'Path to initially displayed Folder' and 'path to root folder for navigation'.
    In 'path to initially displayed folder', replace the < character with %3c and > with %3e. DO not change the second parameter.

  • HTTP 400 Bad Request Invalid URL error when URL contain only percent "%" without any Hexadecimal

    Hi All, I'm trying to redirect a custom error page when URL contain percent "%" symbol. But when I use percent "%" symbol in URL (, its saying below error. I don't want to show this error message. I want
    to redirect users to custom error page.  I already added custom error page in IIS & Web.config file for status code 400. But It's now working. It's still showing the same error.
    Bad Request - Invalid URL
    HTTP Error 400. The request URL is invalid
    Is there any way to redirect custom error page when URL contain only "%" symbol? Anyone please help me on this. Thanks advance.
    Below are my server details:
    IIS version 7.5
    .Net Framework 4.0

    I see, so the issue isn't with the % in the query string but rather the URL path itself.  In that case I don't believe this is anything related to your app but rather the web server.  When you provide a URL the web server has to map that to an
    application.  Depending upon where the character falls determines who gets to handle it.  Since the % is next to the domain name it is most likely not being mapped by the web server so you get the general 400 error.  Since this isn't an app
    issue but a server level issue you'd have to redirect at the server level (in IIS: Server\Error Pages). If the % is inside an application's virtual directory then it becomes an issue for the application (in IIS: Site\Error Pages).
    But things can get more complicated.  The web server generally has filters so it won't support requests for certain things (like web.config in ASP.NET apps).  Filtering can be done anywhere between the server and the application.  Complicating
    this is virtual path providers (like MVC). 
    To be honest I don't think you should be worrying about this scenario.  An invalid % in a URL is a bad request so you shouldn't try to treat it differently than a regular 400 error.  In fact I'd say that it could be a security hole (depending
    upon what you're doing).  So you can customize 400 errors at the server or app level if you want but I wouldn't bother trying to distinguish bad URLs from bad requests.
    I recommend you post this question in the ASP.NET forums ( ) to see if anyone has a better answer.

  • Bad Request - Invalid Verb

    Has anyone seen this before?  I'm logged in as an admin.  No matter what role, I get this error.  This is a single tier installation.  I have tried rebooting the VM as well.
    All VCM services are running.  Windows Host VM is Server 2008 R2.

    I don't recall ever seeing this behavior before, and I've been working with VCM a long time.
    What version is this?
    DId it ever work? If so, when did it stop working?
    Are you getting the same error when running Internet Explorer directly on the Collector as you do when running it from a remote machine?
    Checking the Windows IIS logs (text logs) would be a good way to get more details of the error, as it appears to be an IIS-generated error.

  • Error: invalid content type for SOAP: TEXT/HTML; HTTP 400 Bad Request

    Hi Gurus,
    i am hardly fighting with this error in Communication Channel Monitoring:
    Message processing failed. Cause: invalid content type for SOAP: TEXT/HTML; HTTP 400 Bad Request
    SOAP: call failed: invalid content type for SOAP: TEXT/HTML; HTTP 400 Bad Request
    This is my scenario.
    I do a File to SOAP Scenario. in SXI_MONITOR everything is fine.
    My CommChan is a SOAP Receiver
    SOAP 1.1
    Central Adapter Engine
    Target URL is https --> i check url for correctness
    Configure User Authentication is checked and username and pw are given and are correct.
    Configure Certificate Authentication is checked are working
    Configure Proxy is checked and Host and port are povided.
    SOAP Action is provided
    In Tab Module
    if have this Processing Sequence
    1     localejbs/AF_Modules/MessageTransformBean     Local Enterprise Bean     transform
    2     Local Enterprise Bean     1
    and this Module configuration (and only this)
    transform     Transform.ContentType     text/xml;charset=utf-8
    (according to /people/sobhithalaxmi.kata/blog/2009/07/21/cost-free-edi-integration-using-message-transformation-bean)
    As far as i understand that my http header should have Content-Type: text/xml;charset=utf-8 now. I don't understand why Communication Channel Monitoring shows an error according to content TEXT/HTML.
    Can anyone help me with that?
    Is it possible that Transform.ContentType does not work for SOAP Receiver Adapter?
    is there any chance to view the HTTP-Header of the outgoing SOAP Request (with PI Transaction / Java Enironment) to convince myself that the HTTP Header is text/xml?
    Thank you in advance and Best Regards

    Hi Thanks for your fast replies.
    The Provider of the Endpoint tells me that he needs text/xml as content-type. When I sent a message to the given Endpoint via SOAP UI I can see in the HTTP LOG of SOAP UI that the Endpoint is also sending text/xml back.
    Below you find the Details log out of the CommChan Monitoring.

    What i am missing is a hint on the Message Transform Bean and a on a successfull sending process.
    What i also tried already:
    i also activated the checkbox "Do not use SOAP Envelop" in CommChan Configuration. The Result you see below (the last log entry is on first line - so read from bottom to top)
    Message processing failed. Cause: SOAP: response message contains an error XIAdapter/HTTP/ADAPTER.HTTP_EXCEPTION - HTTP 400 Bad Request
    error in response
    call completed
    request entering
    Message processing started
    As you can see there is a "call completed" and "error in response" log entry. This is missing in in the first Log. So i guess the error is still in the sending process.
    Installing additional Software on the PI and use them to find out what the HTTP Request is is not possible as system access is very strict and limited :/

  • Invalid request in SOAP Scenario - "HTTP 400 Bad Request"

    By sending request to a Webservice thorugh XI ,I am getting an error as "HTTP 400 Bad Request" in MONI and the response payload looks like this
    "Request Error (invalid_request)
    Your request could not be processed. Request could not be handled 
    This could be caused by a misconfiguration, or possibly a malformed request. 
    For assistance, contact your network support team."
    I copy pasted the request payload in SOAP UI,  there its working fine.I don't know where it goes wrong.
    Please help me in that...

    Hi Yugapreetha,
    Error: HTTP 400- Bad Request- ICM_HTTP_CONNECTION_FAILED
    Description: The request could not be understood by the server due to malformed syntax. The client SHOULD NOT repeat the request without modifications.
    Possible Tips: May be because of huge message flow. Related SAP Notes-824554, 906435, 783515, 910649, 706563 If it is because of Queue problems have a look into SMQ2 .
    And also here are a list of possible reasons for your problem with solutions.
    It could be that it cannot find your file adapter.
    1. Have you specified your hostname or IP address? Often the server cannot resolve the ip address for the hostname of your PC.
    2. Is the path and port in the directory the same as the path and port of your file adapter?
    3. Try question 14 (integration engine section)
    4. also question 11 (in the same section)
    5. if the avove will not fix it open XI config guide and
    have a look at section
    "Connecting Business Systems with an Integration Engine to the Central Integration Server"
    6. Your error code is 400, so check this link,
    For http 400 - its a bad request.
    'The request could not be understood by the server due to malformed syntax.'
    If you have the XI trouble shooting guide see from page 54,and also try:
    1.Check that the port really is the ICM HTTP Port (transaction
    SMICM) and not the J2EE port
    2.If the port is wrong, change the pipeline URL in the SLD in
    the business system of the Integration Server
    3.Restart the J2EE Engine to reset the SLD buffer of the
    Adapter Engine
