Subject [users@httpd] reverse proxy not working with file upload(multipart/form-data)
Date Fri, 22 Jul 2011 05:02:18 GMT

Hi all,

I am using apache 2.2.15 as a reverse proxy
server in front of tomcat app server. The application needs a file
of  less than 500 bytes to be uploaded by user. This works fine
without reverse proxy but fails always when used with reverse proxy.

I have tried with many versions of apache including apache 2.0.54,
2.0.64, 2.2.15 and 2.2.19.

The other pages served by reverse
proxy server are fine.

When trying to upload the file wireshark
shows the packet as "continuation or non-http data" and the
application gets stuck there.

My configuration is as

   ProxyRequests Off
KeepAliveTimeout 500
   ProxyPass /
   ProxyPassReverse /
   ProxyPassReverseCookiePath /

ProxyPass / http://BACKEND-SERVER:8080/
/ http://BACKEND-SERVER:8080/

Can anyone tell what may be the
