In AEM 6.2, you are unable to create a project through the New Project wizard. It returns an unspecified error when selecting a project and clicking Next. This only occurs via dispatcher and works fine in any other version of AEM.
Steps to reproduce the issue:
The special characters in the URL are "double escaped" and causing the 404 error.
This has been fixed in 6.3, however, there is no separate fix available for 6.2. As a workaround, configure Apache to allow encoded slashes in URLs, use the following directive:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerName www.geometrixx-outdoors.com AllowEncodedSlashes On <Directory /> <IfModule disp_apache2.c> SetHandler dispatcher-handler </IfModule> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None </Directory> </VirtualHost>
