I have Apache2 configured to proxy all traffic directed to a specific virtual host to a local tomcat instance.
All is good and fine but for multipart posts larger than ~100kb. Such posts fail on the tomcat end with an exception like SocketTimeoutException.
If I connect directly to Tomcat (which listens on a port != 80) then all posts are handled just fine.
The Apache virtual host config goes like this:
NameVirtualHost * SetOutputFilter DEFLATE <VirtualHost *> ServerName foo.bar.com ErrorLog c:/wamp/logs/foo_error.log CustomLog c:/wamp/logs/foo_access.log combined ProxyTimeout 60 ProxyPass / http://localhost:10080/foo/ ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:10080/foo/ ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain localhost bar.com ProxyPassReverseCookiePath /foo / </VirtualHost>
I tried browsing the Apache2 and mod_proxy docs but found nothing useful. Any idea why Apache2 refuses to proxy requests bigger than X bytes ?
