Subject [users@httpd] content-length request header ssue with apache http server
Date Thu, 30 May 2013 11:18:17 GMT

I faced following issue in apache http server.
1) For a request, if content-length request header specifies x bytes as the
content-length and server doesn't receive specified number of bytes within
timeout period, 500 Internal Server Error is returned to the client.

Server logs show, error in reading request entity data.

IMO, the response code in above case should ideally be 408 Request Time Out
instead of 500 as this is a client error and there is nothing wrong on
server side.

Any thoughts/comments?

Thanks & Ragards,
