Stash reports a similar exception when browsing folders with a space in their name

Caused by: Illegal character in path at index 86: <Path to Folder>


This is due to the proxy server not configured correctly for URL encoding.


Test without the proxy to confrm it't related to the proxy configuration. Ensure all steps listed in the Stash Integration with Apache HTTP Server have been completed successfully, specially the ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse directives. If using mod_jk, add the following option to your Apache mod_jk configuration:


<Connector port="8009" protocol="AJP/1.3" URIEncoding="UTF-8"/>
