Subject [jira] Reopened: (MODPYTHON-84) req.sendfile(filename) sends an incorrect number of bytes when filename is a symlink
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2006 11:37:31 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MODPYTHON-84?page=all ]
Graham Dumpleton reopened MODPYTHON-84:

     Assign To: Graham Dumpleton  (was: Jim Gallacher)

As per report by Sergey:


  I'd like to offer the following patch for 3.2.8's sendfile function that
  asks APR to provide less information about a file (which is beneficial
  on Windows as APR doesn't have to construct POSIX protection flags),
  because the only field in use becomes file size. Incidentally, it also
  allows mod_python (plus Apache 2.2 patch) to work with the following
  tweak for APR 1.2.7 (required for Subversion), under Windows and Apache
  2.2.2: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.apache.apr.devel/9389/.

  I didn't test the patch on anything but Windows XP. The error I was
  getting with the setup above was "Could not stat file for reading."
  I also have to mention that the whole thing was compiled with VS 2005
  compiler to support Python 2.4, although I think it's not relevant for
  the patch attached.

with patch:

the original change to fix this symlink issue was causing issues on Win32, plus needs to be
changed to work with a APR 1.2.7 change required for subversion to work.

Thus the patch above, seems to be necessary.

At this stage can't see anything wrong with the change.

>   Components: core
>     Versions: 3.1.4, 3.1.3, 3.2.7
>     Reporter: Jim Gallacher
>     Assignee: Graham Dumpleton
>      Fix For: 3.2.7

> This issue was reported by Wim Heirman on the mod_python list:
> When req.sendfile(filename) is called where filename is a symbolic link, only part of
the file is sent to the client (as many bytes as there are characters in the symlink's file
reference, so for a symlink pointing to '../index.html'  returns the first 13 bytes of the
correct file).
> Wim suggested changing APR_READ to APR_FINFO_NORM in the apr_stat call in req_sendfile().
