Description Pavel Mateja 2013-01-16 14:30:29 UTC
Documentation "http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/core.html#limitrequestbody" says:
Default:	LimitRequestBody 0
This directive specifies the number of bytes from 0 (meaning unlimited) to 2147483647 (2GB) that are allowed in a request body.

This works in apache 2.2.
But this is not tue for proxy requests anymore. Apache 2.4 uses MAX_MEM_SPOOL instead.
I think there should be something like
if (limit && (bytes_spooled + bytes > limit)) {
in ./modules/proxy/mod_proxy_http.c on line 590
