Description Elmar Stellnberger 2009-10-12 04:55:06 UTC
KDE3-konqueror and KDE4-konqueror are widely used internet browsers. However their HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE tags do not conform to the standard:


 As the creator of an own web-page posting an error for konqueror will not have the desired effect (in a fact this error has been known for long, but the developers of konqueror did not change anything about it, though.) as I do also want users with elder browser versions to be able to view my site correctly.
 Would it be possible to make apache2 parse the HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE tags from above correctly (I think the tags are straight forward this way; only the standard is a bitly odd here.)?

Please help us to refine our list of open and current defects; this is a mass update of old and inactive Bugzilla reports which reflect user error, already resolved defects, and still-existing defects in httpd.

As repeatedly announced, the Apache HTTP Server Project has discontinued all development and patch review of the 2.2.x series of releases. The final release 2.2.34 was published in July 2017, and no further evaluation of bug reports or security risks will be considered or published for 2.2.x releases. All reports older than 2.4.x have been updated to status RESOLVED/LATER; no further action is expected unless the report still applies to a current version of httpd.

If your report represented a question or confusion about how to use an httpd feature, an unexpected server behavior, problems building or installing httpd, or working with an external component (a third party module, browser etc.) we ask you to start by bringing your question to the User Support and Discussion mailing list, see [https://httpd.apache.org/lists.html#http-users] for details. Include a link to this Bugzilla report for completeness with your question.

If your report was clearly a defect in httpd or a feature request, we ask that you retest using a modern httpd release (2.4.33 or later) released in the past year. If it can be reproduced, please reopen this bug and change the Version field above to the httpd version you have reconfirmed with.

Your help in identifying defects or enhancements still applicable to the current httpd server software release is greatly appreciated.
