Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 37402] mod_proxy has stopped allowing POST sub-requests
Date Sat, 12 Sep 2009 23:49:22 GMT

There are some underlying issues caused by the way the server currently works
that make this a difficult problem to solve.

Right now today, the server goes to some effort to ensure that a body is read
from the browser once, and once only. If the body were to be read twice, the
next browser request would be read in and interpreted as a body instead, or if
there is no next request, the request would hang waiting for data from the
browser that the browser has no intention of sending.

This has been addressed on trunk through the kept body filter, which attempts
to set aside the body up to some limit just once, and then "caps" the input
filter stack, allowing you to read the same saved body over and over again in
subrequests, without ever having to worry that the browser be read from more
than once.
