when I upgraded a client's staging site to 4.7.28, which added in a check to verify the resource url setting, we started getting a warning that the site's resource url was incorrect.

However, the setting is correct.

after chasing my tail for a while, I finally realized that the check for resource url is not done by the browser in a way that would pass along other validation credentials.

This led to the resource url check, which tries to load the small arrow image used in the civiCRM admin menus, to fail in my case because all non live/production sites are behind htaccess passwords.

When the update was moved to a publicly accessible url, the resource url check worked as expected.

  • I'm gathering this also means if your Drupal site is in maintenance mode that you'll get this error. So I'll just hide the error on our dev site. Mar 22, 2018 at 3:53
