Any progress on this? It seems to be an Apache2 mod_proxy_fcgi bug that has been fixed a long time ago:


Just upgrade Apache2 to a newer version.

Do we have any further update on this? I am using RHEL 7.6 with httpd version '2.4.6-88'. 

Should I need to update httpd to solve this bug? Let us know so that We could solve this issue.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 shipped it's final minor release on September 29th, 2020. 7.9 was the last minor releases scheduled for RHEL 7.
From intial triage it does not appear the remaining Bugzillas meet the inclusion criteria for Maintenance Phase 2 and will now be closed. 

From the RHEL life cycle page:
"During Maintenance Support 2 Phase for Red Hat Enterprise Linux version 7,Red Hat defined Critical and Important impact Security Advisories (RHSAs) and selected (at Red Hat discretion) Urgent Priority Bug Fix Advisories (RHBAs) may be released as they become available."

If this BZ was closed in error and meets the above criteria please re-open it flag for 7.9.z, provide suitable business and technical justifications, and follow the process for Accelerated Fixes:

Feature Requests can re-opened and moved to RHEL 8 if the desired functionality is not already present in the product. 

Please reach out to the applicable Product Experience Engineer[0] if you have any questions or concerns.
