Clicking in Views got Ajax Error Description 0

Located in:

I was running into an irritating problem where trying to update some Views properties would result in a javascript alert with an error like this:

The page at says:

An error occurred at

Error Description: 0:

Not only was the error irritating, but it prevented me from making changes in the Views interface so I couldn't do my work. My apache log would have corresponding lines like this:

"OPTIONS /pespall/admin/build/views/ajax/display/pesapall_meeskond/page_1/path HTTP/1.1" 403 10933

In essence, this ajax call was being met with a 403 Forbidden. I played with my apache config, but had no luck fixing it. Finally, staring at the javascript error alert for the umpteenth time, it was saying "The page at https://..." and "An error occurred at http://...". Could it be something to do with SSL?

My Fix

My dev environment was using https because the project I was working on had the Drupal Secure Pages module enabled for admin pages. (ie. any admin pages need to be served over https) Eureka! I disabled the Secure Pages module on my local dev environment, re-loaded the View I was working on with http (not https) and that nasty error went away. So now, back to work!

Attention IE user!

It turns out you are using an outdated browser and my site might look a bit weird for you. (images are off colour, text gets cut off, layout is wacky) This is because your browser does not implement web standards. Please consider an upgrade.

Alternatively, you can try other browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Apple's Safari. Every web developer on the planet will thank you! (and that's not really an exaggeration)
