Subject [users@httpd] mod_proxy configuration problem using 2.2.11
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2009 10:32:51 GMT
Hi All,

I am having a problem with mod_proxy and httpd 2.2.11

my mod_proxy_balancer configuration looks like this:

<Proxy balancer://liveheavy>
  BalancerMember route=1 connectiontimeout=3 status=D
  BalancerMember route=2 connectiontimeout=3 status=D
  BalancerMember route=3 connectiontimeout=3 status=D
  ProxySet  lbmethod=byrequests stickysession=backend

I have been using this with httpd 2.2.10 without problem. As soon as I installed 
2.2.11 I get the following error on startup:

Syntax error on line 5 of ....conf:
BalancerMember Connectiontimeout has wrong format

I had a look and noticed that connectiontimeout has been modified in
2.2.11 to accept a postfix ms to allow milliseconds to be specified.
However, if left blank this should default to seconds. I also tried
setting connectiontimeout=3s and this failed with the same error. Is this
a known bug? 

OS is debian etch

httpd -V
