XF 1.5 header X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN twice


Active member
I migrate from xf 1.2 to xf1.5 recently. I have a strange problem, is possible that xenforo send a x-frame-options header ?
If i get the http headers of other page that is not xenforo i dont have the x-frame-options twice. I check all my nginx configuration files and only found one header declaration.

XF implemented "click jacking" protection in XF 1.2 (so you should have already had that). With that enabled (which it is by default) we will send a X-Frame-Options SAMEORIGIN header. But we should only send it once.

There are a lot of non-standard headers there, so I have to guess that you have something adding it outside of XF.

Yes are the headers that my nginx configuration has.
Great thanks to the @Chris D post I found in help that i can disable the click jacking in config.php and control my header via nginx configuration that is i do. Sorry for my misunderstanding I'm member of this forum from the beginning but dont remember nothing about the click jacking option. (n) now only have one x-frame-options header once deactivate the option in xenforo config file.

Thanks a lot and sorry again :LOL:
