Subject RE: [users@httpd] Issues with 1.3.31
Date Fri, 21 May 2004 14:45:50 GMT
I upgraded by recompiling from source.
To preserve the same configuration from 1.3.29 I executed the config.status
file created during the installation of 1.3.29 in the 1.3.31 installation
directory and then executed the make command and then installed it.  I also
made no changes to the httpd.conf file where I load some third party modules
when apache starts up.  
Since I used the same configure command for both versions shouldn't they
have been built exactly the same?
Thanks for the info,

When you say "upgraded" how did you upgrade?  Did you recompile Apache from
source?  Do an "httpd -l" to list what modules are compile into it.  You
might be missing one that you have in the other.  The module may also not
have been loaded from the config file.  There are a lot of reasons why the
problem could have happened.

Subject: [users@httpd] Issues with 1.3.31



Last weekend I upgraded our webserver from 1.3.29 to 1.3.31.  The site we
maintain has numerous user selectable forms that pass data via the POST
method to either coldfusion or cgi programs.  Almost immediately after the
upgrade I saw the following errors in the error log when the forms were
being submitted:

        Invalid method in request 

These errors would not occur every time one of these forms were submitted so
I was unable to pinpoint the problem.  I had never seen this error before
upgrading to 1.3.31 and we have been running apache at our company since
2000.  A couple of days ago I reinstalled version 1.3.29 to see if the
errors would stop.  Since the reinstall of 1.3.29 I have not had the above
error appear in my error log.  

Has anyone else observed this issue with 1.3.31?  

Any ideas or comments would be appreciated.
