Subject: [users@httpd] apache forward proxy download problem




I'm facing a problem when using apache with mod_proxy module configured
as forward proxy.

Downloads fail more often than there successful. Especially large
downloads(10MB+), but also the small ones.

I have tried to use different combinations of configurations to
eliminate the problem, but the problem is still there.


The problem is reproducible on different hardware, 2 different linux
versions( Redhat Enterprise 3 and Redhat Enterprise 4) and different
apache versions(2.0 and I also tried the 2.1 alpha version). I also
tried to compile mod_proxy support into apache, not with modules. That
doesn't make the difference.


Things I see in the error_log of apache 2.1 are:


(104)Connection reset by peer: proxy: error reading response


error_log of apache 2.0:

[notice] child pid 20653 exit signal Segmentation fault (11)


[Fri Aug 12 15:02:51 2005] [notice] child pid 431 exit signal Abort (6)


I added a rule to the apache configuration to force the use of http-1.0
and not to use keepalives, but downloads still fail.


Apache is compiled with mpm=worker


Does anyone have a solution for this? Or is this maybe a bug in
