apache-mod_request - Filters to handle and make available HTTP request bodies
||OpenMandriva Main Release x86_64
Under normal circumstances, request handlers such as the default handler
for static files will discard the request body when it is not needed by
the request handler. As a result, filters such as mod_include are limited
to making GET requests only when including other URLs as subrequests, even
if the original request was a POST request, as the discarded request body
is no longer available once filter processing is taking place.
When this directive has a value greater than zero, request handlers that
would otherwise discard request bodies will instead set the request body
aside for use by filters up to the maximum size specified. In the case of the
mod_include filter, an attempt to POST a request to the static shtml file will
cause any subrequests to be POST requests, instead of GET requests as before.
This feature makes it possible to break up complex web pages and web
applications into small individual components, and combine the components
and the surrounding web page structure together using mod_include. The
components can take the form of CGI programs, scripted languages, or URLs
reverse proxied into the URL space from another server using mod_proxy.
Note: Each request set aside has to be set aside in temporary RAM until the
request is complete. As a result, care should be taken to ensure sufficient
RAM is available on the server to support the intended load. Use of this
directive should be limited to where needed on targeted parts of your URL
space, and with the lowest possible value that is still big enough to hold
a request body.
If the request size sent by the client exceeds the maximum size allocated
by this directive, the server will return 413 Request Entity Too Large.
