Subject mod_cgid not able to handle large POST request
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2006 09:36:45 GMT

On using mod_cgid to handle large POST request i get a page not found error.
This is what I did.
Have a HTML which generates a huge POST request and the action is taken by a
cgi-script which just checks the size of the request.

The html is
Click TEST for doing POST data!<p>

<form method="POST" action="">
POST_DATA <input type="text" name="userid"

<input type="hidden" name="action" value="submit">
<input type="button" value="TEST" onClick="this.disabled=true;


The test3.cgi is

print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
if ($ENV{CONTENT_LENGTH} > 2048) {
    print "Too much!\n";
} else {
    print "OK\n";

With this set up the script displays OK. But when the number of 1's in the
html is increased to a very huge number then I get a page not found error. I
do not find this error with mod_cgi though. Has this been noticed before.
