Subject [users@httpd] Problem with mod_proxy + chunked encoding
Date Tue, 11 Oct 2005 13:26:02 GMT


We are currently using the "mod_proxy" (proxy + reverse proxy) Apache
module to forward some HTTP requests to an external HTTP

standalone server application. The HTTP clients contacting our front
Apache server are using chunked encoding + HTTP POST.


Our problem is that when Apache forwards the HTTP requests to the
external HTTP application, they are no more chunked,

and they don't have any content-length header either.


The HTTP application contacted handle correctly chunked requests, or
normal requests with content-lenght, but the

case of normal requests without content-length is not handled properly


So, the question is: is there any way to:


  a) make Apache forwarding HTTP requests without any modification (keep
the body chunked).


  b) make Apache adding the body content-length, as it knows the total
length of the body he as "unchunked".


Or, maybe if you have any idea of another solution ?



Thanks for your help,
