Subject RE: [mp2] aborting a file upload
Date Sat, 03 Mar 2007 01:28:26 GMT
Thanks, but I am afraid I do not understand your reply.

Should a body with size > POST_MAX cause the upload to fail? Does it
send an error back to the client? It did not appear to do either of
those things for me.

In my situation I want to still process the request, and return ok to
the client, just not accept the file!

What is a 'fat' apr object?

I don't know if this will help at all, but its all I can add:

	I found that while POST_MAX can be modified as the docs say, it
can only be lowered (which the docs dont ).
	To get around those issues, I made a module that i either have
other modules register to on startup , or manually code it.  It handles
conditions/routines to know if i need a 'fat' apr object.
	If so, my dispatch hander sets a high POST_MAX.  if not , it

	That approach solved 90% of my issues , and was very fast to
