Description Christoph Anton Mitterer 2013-08-11 22:50:57 UTC
Hi.

AFAIU the code, force-proxy-request-1.0 implies proxy-sendcl and also that any of proxy-sendchunks/proxy-sendchunked is ignored.

I think that implication should be documented for easiness.


I'm not sure whether force-proxy-request-1.0 also implies proxy-nokeepalive (don't think so though)... but if it does... then please document that as well.


Cheers,
Chris.

I just tcpdumped a bit and the following seems to be the case (but please double check).

If force-proxy-request-1.0 is set force-proxy-request-1.0 is _ignored_ and neither
Connection: close
nor
Connection: Keep-Alive
is set on the request to the origin.


That would also make the hints here:
https://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/mod_proxy.html#envsettings
a bit misleading, since it makes not sense to set both.


Please update the documentation accordingly.

Same property listed twice.

Oops... wrong copy&pasting ;-)

In the 2nd part I meant:
"If force-proxy-request-1.0 is set proxy-nokeepalive is _ignored_ and ..."

Cheers,
Chris.
