Easily Check HTTP Headers with this tool

December 28th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

We were trying to solve an annoying bug in our mod_rewrite code today and couldn't quite figure out why our server was acting the way it was.  Fortunately we discovered a nifty tool (Thanks pkhach!) that allows you to view the HTTP request and response headers for any URL you like.  You can even choose between HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/1.0, with and without the Host header.

A reader also suggests this Firefox extension.  Thanks, Eric!

The best part is that both of these are much easier than messing about with Telnet.exe!

We receive dozens of questions every month from people who don't leave us with any way to contact them, so we have no choice but to ignore the question. We try to reply to as many questions as we can, if we know the email address of the person who asked the question. Thanks in advance for writing in :)
