Ever since I updated my forum to 4.6.2, topics on the forum index page and in forums themselves are being "downloaded" rather than displayed when you click on them. It's not consistent, ie: it doesn't happen every time. It is easily reproducible.
Is anyone else seeing this?
I am not so sure this is related to the update. Probably a server misconfiguration with NGINX.
You can test the server response for a link with free services like https://securityheaders.com
You want a response of “200” but your server tries a 304 redirect (that fails). You need to find out why that occurs.
Thanks for that hint at what might be the cause. When I upgraded to 4.6.2 I also updated the PHP to 7.4.20 from 7.3.28. That seems to have been the problem. I reverted back to 7.3.28 and everything is working fine again. I wonder if I need some specific directives with 7.4.20?
Anyways - Thank you!
I revisited this and upgraded PHP to 7.4.20 from 7.3.28. This time I cleared all the caches as I suspected this was actually a cache problem.
Seems to have worked! Everything is working normally.
