        There are some unexpected redirects happening:

        http://www.whoishostingthis.com/mirrors/apache/zzz/time.txt redirects to
        http://mirrors.whoishostingthis.com/apache/zzz/time.txt

        but

        http://mirrors.whoishostingthis.com/apache/zzz/ redirects to
        http://www.whoishostingthis.com/mirrors/apache/zzz/

        This is causing problems for browsing the site.

        For example, start at

        http://www.whoishostingthis.com/mirrors/apache/

        Then select any subdirectory, e.g. abdera, this goes to

        http://www.whoishostingthis.com/mirrors/apache/abdera/

        However, then select the "Parent Directory" link; and one is returned to

        http://www.whoishostingthis.com/apache/

        which is a 404

        This is very confusing for users; please investigate and fix.

        Hi Sebb.

        Please accept my apologies - clearly I did not test it enough before submitting.

        I have fixed the navigation issues.

        The site will redirect downloads of most files so that they come from a server with more disk and bandwidth which runs on the mirrors subdomain. Hope that's ok.

        Thanks.

        It seems to be working better now, thanks.

        I'm not seeing any redirects for the few sample files I have tested, and the navigation via parent link works OK.

        Great, thanks.

        You'll see redirects for most files, but not .txt or the zzz files. e.g.

        curl --head http://www.whoishostingthis.com/mirrors/apache/abdera/1.1.3/apache-abdera-1.1.3-src.tar.gz
        HTTP/1.1 302 Found
        Date: Fri, 30 Aug 2013 20:47:57 GMT
        Server: Apache
        Location: http://mirrors.whoishostingthis.com/mirrors/apache/abdera/1.1.3/apache-abdera-1.1.3-src.tar.gz
        ...

        Thanks.
