Missing in 1.5.x:

Description

Lighttpd currently does not handle section 8.2.3 of the HTTP/1.1 spec correctly (it always responds with HTTP/1.1 417 Expectation Failed). As a result many common HTTP/1.1 clients cannot POST data to lighttpd based web servers. (mshtml, Visual Studio, libcurl, HttpClient, HttpWebRequest)

Please see section 8.2.3 of
http://www.w3.org/Protocols/rfc2616/rfc2616-sec8.html

I also see this when Flash 9 tries to upload files in Linux. Oddly, the Windows version of Flash doesn't send this header.

Otherwise, please respect what the developers state.

Why?

#6 Updated by hoffie over 6 years ago

Because developers usually know their stuff better than users and probably have good reasons for their statements.
See #1017 in this case.

  1. not a bug - see http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-14.20
  2. if you think it is a trivial fix, then please provide a patch.
  3. fix your clients
