Subject [users@httpd] APREQ2_ReadLimit fails to override max_body limit
Date Mon, 12 Oct 2009 17:01:38 GMT

I need help with using apreq2. I'm programming a rails app for
uploading large files and I'm trying to offload the grunt work to
apreq2 so that long upload processes don't deplete my ruby thread pool
in mod_passenger.

There is a lightweight wrapper I'm using called mod_porter that
provides the ruby API and the bridge between apreq2 and rails.

I have APREQ2_ReadLimit set to 2G in my config, however uploads are
still being limited to the default 64M:

Internal error: Content-Length header (xxx) exceeds configured
max_body limit (67108864)

I've read that setting this value overrides the default limits, but
that is obviously net yet the case with my current setup.

Is there anything I've missed? A bug?

This is running off a Gentoo system,
apache 2.2.13
