Apache 2.2 - Request header read timeout - Anyone come across this?


Hi all,

I've been trying to figure out what Apache directive is causing this:

Code:
[Thu Nov 11 15:00:00 2010] [info] [client x.x.x.x] Request header read timeout
My apache version is:
Apache/2.2.14 (Ubuntu)

I have google searched for this error but cannot seem to find any matches or information.

Please help, thanks

Hi,

Never seen that, but the only relevant apache directive is TimeOut

Regards

Thanks for the reply.

Even setting the timeout directive to a ridiculous number (800000000 or so) doesn't help - still get the info message.

It seems to occur immediately after serving the page.

1. Client sends page request
2. LDAP authenticates and accepts the user/pass
3. Page is compressed using mod_deflate
4. Page appears on client browser
5. Request header timeout error occurs

I've also just noted that the message was logged only when using google chrome. Just tried the page with IE as a test but the message wasn't logged.

Not sure how serious this, and I find it weird why the Apache docs don't have ANY info on this. If anyone has any other ideas or suggestions please keep me posted.

Thanks

I guess it's chrome that doesn't like mod_deflate. Maybe it's this bug
Does this happens with firefox?

If it works with FF and IE then it's not serious, as chrome is still not widely adopted. Maybe that's the reason there is nothing on apache docs.
Let's hope google fixes the bug soon.
