Yeah, I do have SELinux enabled and thought about that.  I think using sudo
to open the file as 'apache' would have tested for that - can read the file
that way.


I'll try disabling it just to be 100% sure, but I don't think that's it.

Could it be that you have SELinux enabled and it is messing with you?

Subject: [users@httpd] problem serving large files


I'd like to make some very large files available for HTTP download from my
Apache v2.2.3 server on RHEL5, but it's not working.


I get the following error message:

[error] [client] (13)Permission denied: access to
/Very_Large_File.rar denied



It would appear to be a file permission problem, but the directory paths to
the document root are all 755 or better:







and the permissions on the file itself I've set to 777 for testing purposes.


The same client can download small .rar files from the same directory with
the same file permissions.   The only difference that I can discern is that
the file is smaller in size.


I've further tested access to the file with "sudo -u apache cat
Very_Large_file.rar" which can open the file fine.   So I've pretty much
ruled out permissions issues.



I've also enabled 'debug' LogLevel but there's nothing generated that is


I don't see anything in my .conf files that enforce any file sizes.    I
didn't even see such an option in the document, there appears to be
configuration options only for limiting the size of the HTTP request *sent*
by the client.


Any insight into what's happen would be appreciated!
