  +The LimitRequestBody directive allows the user to set a
  +limit on the allowed size of an HTTP request message body within
  +the context in which the directive is given (server, per-directory,
  +per-file or per-location).  If the client request exceeds that limit,
  +the server will return an error response instead of servicing the request.
  +The size of a normal request message body will vary greatly depending
  +on the nature of the resource and the methods allowed on that resource.
  +CGI scripts typically use the message body for passing form information
  +to the server.  Implementations of the PUT method will require a value
  +at least as large as any representation that the server wishes
  +to accept for that resource.
  +<P>
  +
  +This directive gives the server administrator greater control over abnormal
  +client request behavior, which may be useful for avoiding some forms
  +of denial-of-service attacks.

  +The default value is defined by the compile-time constant
  +<CODE>DEFAULT_LIMIT_REQUEST_FIELDS</CODE> (100 as distributed).
  +<P>
  +
  +The LimitRequestFields directive allows the server administrator to modify
  +the limit on the number of request header fields allowed in an HTTP request.
  +A server needs this value to be larger than the number of fields that a
  +normal client request might include.  The number of request header fields
  +used by a client rarely exceeds 20, but this may vary among different
  +client implementations, often depending upon the extent to which a user
  +has configured their browser to support detailed content negotiation.
  +Optional HTTP extensions are often expressed using request header fields.
  +<P>
  +
  +This directive gives the server administrator greater control over abnormal
  +client request behavior, which may be useful for avoiding some forms
  +of denial-of-service attacks.  The value should be increased if normal
  +clients see an error response from the server that indicates too many
  +fields were sent in the request.<P>

  +(8190 as distributed).
  +<P>
  +
  +The LimitRequestFieldsize directive allows the server administrator to reduce
  +the limit on the allowed size of an HTTP request header field below the
  +normal input buffer size compiled with the server.  A server needs this
  +value to be large enough to hold any one header field from a normal client
  +request.  The size of a normal request header field will vary greatly
  +among different client implementations, often depending upon the extent
  +to which a user has configured their browser to support detailed
  +content negotiation.
  +<P>
  +
  +This directive gives the server administrator greater control over abnormal

  +<P>
  +
  +The LimitRequestLine directive allows the server administrator to reduce
  +the limit on the allowed size of a client's HTTP request-line below the
  +normal input buffer size compiled with the server.  Since the request-line
  +consists of the HTTP method, URI, and protocol version, the
  +LimitRequestLine directive places a restriction on the length of a
  +request-URI allowed for a request on the server.  A server needs this
  +value to be large enough to hold any of its resource names, including
  +any information that might be passed in the query part of a GET request.
  +<P>
  +
  +This directive gives the server administrator greater control over abnormal
  +client request behavior, which may be useful for avoiding some forms
  +of denial-of-service attacks.  Under normal conditions, the value should
