Subject RE: [users@httpd] Multipart/Form-Data
Date Thu, 27 Nov 2003 16:19:55 GMT
Problem Solved! I think.
While experimenting with sniffer's (snort) etc. on the server I got to thinking about channel
ID's and all that good stuff and remembered from somewhere long ago how unix (server is running
on HPUX 11i) could be persnickety about open file descriptors (stdin) when running shell programs
and spawning subprocesses etc., etc. Then I remembered that I was running the server with
mod_cgid active. I deactivated mod_cgid and activated mod_cgi instead and everything works
again!!!
Of course it does not seem right that this would happen in the first place but I do not have
sufficient technical knowledge about the innards of the apache server  to pursue this any
further.
Thank you very much everyone for your input.

Sorry, I'm no tcl wizard, so I cannot help debug that. Check if the
CONTENT_LENGTH var is correct. If it was off by one byte, it could very well
go into a blocking call.
