limits the size of HTTP request header
Apache has a directive named "LimitRequestFieldSize". It limits the size of the HTTP request header allowed from the client.
lighttpd can also do it.
[core] server.max-request-field-size (fixes #2130)
limits total size per request of request headers submitted by client
default limit set to 8k (prior lighttpd <= 1.4.41 hard-coded 64k limit)
(similar to Apache directive LimitRequestFieldSize)
"limits the size of HTTP request header"
- Status changed from Patch Pending to Need Feedback
lighttpd 1.4.x has a hard-coded limit of 64k for HTTP request header, though it will accept slightly larger HTTP request headers if the complete HTTP request header has already been received in kernel socket buffers.
Is there a specific reason for this feature request besides "Apache has this feature"? Default size of kernel socket buffers are typically 64k or larger.
