Subject Re: [users@httpd] ErrorDocument not working for HTTP code 413

Joshua,

I am not using the Apache parameter but a WLS plugin parameter.
I have set the MaxPostSize parameter within the WLS Apache plugin. I am
assuming this causes the 413 to return.
Interestingly, i saw different behaviours with different file sizes.
I have the limit set at 10k.  When i attempt to upload a 15k file, i see
the following error returned to the browser:

Failure of server APACHE bridge:


Your file size is too large to upload.
Build date/time: Dec 13 2006 10:09:29


Change Number: 871803








But if i attempt to upload a much larger file, say 600MB, i get a different
response in the browser:

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

    *   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in
a few
          moments.

    *   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
          connection.

    *   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy,
make sure
          that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.



Thanks
