Description Jan Kratochvil 2004-08-07 17:59:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
After proxy request:

POST ... HTTP/1.1
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
[missing Content-Length]

it will get passed as:

POST ... HTTP/1.1
[no Transfer-Encoding]
[no Connection]
[no Content-Length]

which gets (BTW I think incorrectly) interpreted as POST without any body.

Current httpd-2.1 CVS version proxy handles it by default using:

POST ... HTTP/1.1
[missing Transfer-Encoding]
Content-Length: real-value

after using "proxy-sendchunks" environment it will use:

POST ... HTTP/1.1
Transfer-Encoding: chunked
[missing Content-Length]

Both such resulting requests are compatible.

Attached patch just uses the current CVS snapshot of mod_proxy.
It obsoletes the older backport of mod_proxy in the current patch

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use SonyEricsson P900 mobile phone and specify Apache as its HTTP
2. Post some page.
3. See the webserver logs.

Actual Results:  CGI did not get any data input.

Expected Results:  CGI should get the input.

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

UPSTREAM as it is now being resolved for the next httpd official release:
