Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 51665] New: Inconsistent documentation of LimitRequestLine and friends.
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2011 14:27:39 GMT

             Bug #: 51665
           Summary: Inconsistent documentation of LimitRequestLine and
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.2.17
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
    Classification: Unclassified

According to the on-line docs
LimitRequestLine can be used to lower or *raise* the maximum line

    The LimitRequestLine directive allows the server administrator to
    reduce or increase the limit on the allowed size of a client's
    HTTP request-line.

However, the doxygen documentation says that it can only be used to
*lower* the default line buffer size; indeed, in file
`include/httpd.h` in the Apache 2.2.17 sources, at lines 185--189 it

    Internal buffer sizes are two bytes more than the
    and DEFAULT_LIMIT_REQUEST_FIELDSIZE below, which explains the 8190.
    These two limits can be lowered (but not raised) by the server config
    directives LimitRequestLine and LimitRequestFieldsize, respectively.

Which one is correct?
