Subject [users@httpd] size of output of cgi script?
Date Fri, 31 Jan 2003 11:46:17 GMT

I've run into something a bit bizarre when moving
from apache 1.3x to 2.0x...

I had a perl script that I used under 1.3x and
when I use it under 2.0x the whole form doesn't
load, but hangs on the last row of the table
for a very long time and then I get this message
in the error log....

  [error] [client] (20507)The timeout specified has 
expired: ap_content_length_filter: apr_bucket_read() failed,

and then the page finishes loading but the last row is corrupt.

There are three fields in the last row.  If I remove any two of
them, it works.. doesn't matter which two... I thought there must
be an error in one, but as each field works on it's own, it doesn't
seem to be the case, it's almost as if there is some max size or
something, grasping at straws here, but is does anyone know if the
apache server could cause this?  I'm also using a newer version
of perl, so it's not out of the question that the problem is there,
but when I debug it it seems fine, so it seems like it's the server
at first look.  I've looked at all the max type settings and
googled the error in the log and didn't come up with anything
useful.  If anyone has any clues on this I'd appreciate it.
The script is massive so I don't want to post the whole thing...
and it's real embarassment as I wrote it so long ago...

Anyway, sorry if this doesn't have anything to do with the server,
but I'm fairly stuck.
