Subject Re: [users@httpd] are you using mod_rewrite?
Date Tue, 07 Sep 2010 06:52:00 GMT

I have done some research on this subject and found the following.  The error
only occurs for me when making HTTPS request.  If I make an HTTP request I
never experience this issue.  Additionally I've found that setting a
content-type header alleviates the problem.  Specifically setting the
charset from iso-8859-1 to utf-8 removes the issue.  

This bug is extremely hard to reproduce as it seems that apache needs to run
a while, perhaps days, before the bug presents itself.

Following is my test script using PHP and Curl. Please note the Content-Type
header commented out.  In my case setting the charset to iso-8859-1 causes
the bug to present itself.  On the other hand setting it to utf-8
mysteriously fixes the issue.

Could it be an encoding issue? 

Mike, in regards to your comments about mod_rewrite and mod_deflate.  I do
have a mod_rewrite rule that forces port 80 traffic to port 443 so this
could just as well be part of the issue.  Perhaps mod_rewrite is having a
parsing error when parsing non utf-8 charsets?  I do have mod_deflate
installed but I'm not sure how that it behaves differently for HTTP versus
HTTPS and because I'm unable to reproduce the issue on HTTP request I'm
assuming that the issue must either be mod_rewrite or mod_ssl.  You
mentioned in your post that you've yet to see the issue and you're running
mod_ssl, so that increases my suspicion about mod_rewrite.

Test script follows:

    while ($i <= 1000)
    {
      echo $i."\n";
      $ch = curl_init('https://www.url.com');
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER, true); 
      curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); 
      //curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Content-Type: text/html;
charset=utf-8'));
      $output = curl_exec($ch);
      
      $info = curl_getinfo($ch);
      if($info['http_code'] == 400)
      {
        echo $output;
        exit();
      }
      curl_close($ch);
      $i++;
      
      sleep(1);
    }
