Description Daniele Paolella 2008-04-04 08:54:21 UTC
LimitRequestBody core directive is not applied with proxied requests. Whether it is an intended feature or not, core or proxy docs should explicitly state this behaviour.

Interesting. I've just fixed this in r1066444 . But it raises the question over whether this would make a worthwhile proxy enhancement. Don't see why it shouldn't be enabled in a proxy, provided of course it's not defaulting to a limit. Hijacking your PR to an enhancement request! But that's for trunk, not 2.2.x.

In trunk LimitRequestBody already applies if the body is temporarily spooled to disk (r999288).

(In reply to comment #3) > In trunk LimitRequestBody already applies if the body is temporarily spooled to > disk (r999288). Yes, I saw that. The enhancement is to enable it for all cases, for cases where the proxy is configured explicitly for a backend that wants to limit request bodies.
