Subject Re: [users@httpd] Read errors for GET <file> when <file> is more than 64K
Date Sun, 29 May 2005 03:41:29 GMT
It has been true for every person who has visited the site,  
regardless of browser. I even tried lynx on a unix machine within the  
same network.

I don't think it's a problem with the HTML because, first it worked  
just after Apache was installed, and second, it worked on the last  
version of apache I had the site running on (though it was a  
different computer). In addition, I can view the web pages locally  
(using a file:/// URL) and they have no problem.
