The LimitRequestFieldsize Directive Has No Effect In The httpd.conf File (Doc ID 731043.1)

Last updated on JUNE 29, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle HTTP Server - Version to [Release AS10gR2 to AS10gR3]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This problem can occur on any platform.


There is no impact seen after increasing the HTTP request header size using LimitRequestFieldsize
in the httpd.conf file.

Verified in the OHS access_log file which still shows requests with large headers are failing the
the standard 400 and 401 errors.
