Have you tried placing a <cflocation> tag after the code that does the validating?


<cflocation url="startuppage.cfm">

After validating.....

<cfoutput>
<cfset Random = Rand()>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="0; URL=/startuppage.cfm?Random=#random#">
</cfoutput>

Thanks

So instead of <cflocation url="#cgi.script_name#">, i should put

<cflocation url="startuppage.cfm">.  I dont know if i am doing this correctly

Please a little clarification.

I have been reading about setting security on my application and came across with this

set the value for #cgi.script_name#.  I just don't get it.  

OK if after all the checking and validation and authenticating is done, i want the user the be presented with the "startuppage.cfm"

The full code in the book is:
<cflocation url="#cgi.script_name#">

Thanks.

Yes this is correct.

If you put

<cflocation url="#cgi.script_name#"> you would end up redirecting them to the current page in an endless loop.

See your other post for a bit more clarification about the cgi.script_name vs startuppage.cfm in the cflocation.....
