Subject Re: [users@httpd] Failed downloads: "Could not get next bucket brigade"
Date Wed, 29 Nov 2006 20:47:40 GMT
I am using WebDAV. The user has had trouble using a normal web browser, as well as connecting
via WebDAV with Windows Explorer. 

I added " EnabledSendfile Off " to my config, and the user was able to download some files
which were previously causing problems.

So I've got my fingers crossed ... that might have done the trick!

to 2.0.59 fix the issue? I had issues with DAV and Sendfile. If its a sendfile() capable OS,
have you tried putting EnabledSendfile Off in your configuration?

problem, or a problem on the Server-Side. does the file work if you
open it? does it pass md5 checks?
