Subject [users@httpd] Large File Support in Apache 1.3.33
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2005 22:10:42 GMT
Hi Folks

I remember reading somewhere that Apache 1.3.33 supposedly supports large
files >2G on 32-bit systems. However I'm not having much success.

I've compiled using the following (based on a tip I saw some time ago):

    ./configure \
    "--with-layout=Apache" \

However when I try to fetch a file of 2.1GB in size, i get a negative

    $wget -S http://localhost/2100.txt
    --08:08:29--  http://localhost/2100.txt
               => `2100.txt.1'
    Resolving localhost...
    Connecting to localhost[]:80... connected.
    HTTP request sent, awaiting response...
     1 HTTP/1.1 200 OK

     6 Accept-Ranges: bytes
     7 Content-Length: -2092957696
     8 Keep-Alive: timeout=15, max=100
     9 Connection: Keep-Alive
    10 Content-Type: text/plain

I also get the same response from curl (well, curl exits abnormally).

Any ideas? Is that the correct set of flags to enable large-file support
on 1.3.33 ? TIA.
