I have developed an application which uses a jQuery plugin, which in turn uses excessive cookie data. The problem is, after every 15-20 request I am shown this error message by the browser:
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.
After digging around, I came to know by default apache has the default value of cookie length; somewhere around
8190 bytes. To increase the limit, I need to change/add the directive below to my configuration.
I tried adding the above code in
.htaccess, and restarted the apache server too, but it didn't work.
I am confused on where to place this line; Is it in the
httpd.conf file? Or is there any way I can increase the limit using the
.htaccess file? I would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.
and BTW, I am on OSX 10.7.4 using MAMP.
