Using :someting is causing slim to throw error

This is not a straight use, of course. But I am trying to hack and see what happens.

When I try to request /:test, then it shows the following error message. I want to be able to handle this scenario as well.
Also, is it coming from Apache or Slim?


403 Forbidden


You don't have permission to access /:test on this server.

    You'll need to URL-encode the colon character in your URL. However, if you are getting a forbidden error, that indicates a web server configuration issue and not a Slim issue. Make sure your virtual host is configured properly and its directory/files have adequate permissions.

    Thanks, Josh. Not sure what configuration would cause this. I will check this out.
    I was just trying hack it and see how the application responds, not that I want to pass variables like that :-) kb
