I have a LAMP server running a web service. It is working well but a monitoring service of one of my customers reports that my server does not return when it is called.

I narrowed the problem to this: When the call includes

"Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5"

it works but with

"Accept-Language: en-us,es-ES_tradnl;q=0.5"

it does not work - the call to the server does not return until it is timed out.

How can I make my apache 2.2.3 (CentOS) not fail because of Accept-Language issue?

This call is not valid by HTTP1.1 spec (accept lang param should be up to 8 chars long) So the solution was to change the header in the sender side and not on my server.
