Subject Re: [users@httpd] URI query string in a post method
Date Wed, 18 Oct 2017 07:13:42 GMT
The best idea is to try to guess why exactly it is getting a 400, and
which version of httpd it is.

In recent version (2.4.25) http parsing has become more strict due to
CVE-2016-8743. There is a directive since then too to allow a more
relaxed check of grammar (HttpProtocolOptions), but still, my first
sentence applies.
