QML/Ajax, cross server request (406 error, Not Acceptable)

  • Hello programmers..

    i`m developing an application in Qtquick, so i used Qml to design the interface. and then i used PHP as a server side scrip(to connect to database) and i linked them with AJAX. and it is working very well on my loacal computer.

    Now if i try to put my PHP script on the life server i get a 406 error(Not acceptable).

    here is my AJAX header code:

      this.request.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "text/plain");
      this.request.setRequestHeader("Accept", "text/plain");
      this.request.setRequestHeader("Accept-Charset", "utf-8");

    Now here is my htaccess code on the server:
    (i was trying to allow the app to access the server)

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    	# Turn off mod_security filtering.  SMF is a big boy, it does not need its hands held.
    	SecFilterEngine Off
    	# The below probably isn't needed, but better safe than sorry.
    	SecFilterScanPOST Off
    Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin "*"
    Header set Access-Control-Allow-Headers "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8"
    Header set Access-Control-Allow-Headers "Access-Control-Request-Method: GET"

    I tested these ajax function on the web browser(loading the same info from the remote server through localhost) and it worked very fine and super fast.

    So i dont know why is not working in my QT app...


    It looks like some servers especially HOSTGATOR do not allow request from unknown or suspecious user-agents.

    So my qml app is one of those suspicious UA and thats why i was getting that E406.

    i tried to play around with javascript, doing things like:

    ajax.setRequestheader("User-agent", "myApp");

    but it didnt work...

    So thats why i moved from javascript to c++ (QnetworkAccessManger).

    QNetworkRequest req;
    req.setUrl(QUrl(request) );
    req.setRawHeader( "User-Agent" , "myApp.17.1" );

    and it worked very fine..
    Thank u..
