Hi,

Which version are you talking about?

Apache 1.3 and 2.0 do not have large file support build in, 2.1/2.2 do:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.1/new_features_2_2.html

I'm not sure if there's a compile option for 1.3/2.0 to include large file support, it's not enabled by default if there is.

This 2 GB limit is an 'old' leftover form linux/unix. Nowadays most 32bit Linux distro's do support files larger then 2GB (large file support).

Hope this helps.
