Description Simon Vallet 2007-07-03 09:27:48 EDT
Description of problem:

The version of apache bundled with RHEL 4.5 doesn't seem to be compiled with
large file support. Symptoms are that requests to download a file >2Gb are
rejected with a 403 error code and that such files are not visible in a
directory listing.

httpd should be compiled with large file support, especially since it is
unlikely to break anything.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL 4.5 contains apache httpd version 2.0.52

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to download a file >2Gb in size  (the file tested here has a size of 8gb) 

Actual results:


Expected results:

Comment 1 Joe Orton 2007-07-03 14:44:06 EDT
Unfortunately, Apache httpd 2.0 does not have large file support, so
on 32-bit platforms, files larger than 2Gb cannot be served.  Adding
large file support breaks the binary module interface, so this cannot
be done in an update release.

We fixed the problem upstream for the the httpd 2.2 release, so is fixed in RHEL 5.
