Subject [users@httpd] Read errors for GET <file> when <file> is more than 64K
Date Sat, 28 May 2005 18:55:52 GMT
I compiled a clean version of Apache2 2.0.54 last week and things  
seemed to work fine for a few days. However, now whenever anyone  
tries to access a file larger than 64 K, the browser will fail to  
download. The failure occurs on Safari and Firefox. The access log  
shows a successful response, with the correct file size, but the file  
is always cut off before transfer completes.

What is the best way to debug this problem? Apache isn't giving very  
helpful error messages because it doesn't seem to notice the error,  
and the browsers just say they can't download the whole file. Or is  
this a known problem?

To view the problem, you can look at this user's site:

Any of the photo albums linked from this page will demonstrate the  
problem. The small thumbnails are downloaded without problems, but  
the large versions of the photos cut off before finishing.
