How to override Apache 2GB file limit and get LFS?

Recommended Posts

Seems that apache web server has a 2GB limit.... so i went digging around some more (love google) and found this:

[a href=\"http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=28898\" target=\"_blank\"]http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=28898[/a]

Which is an official bug report to apache, and it was resolved it a solution by Joe Orton, I'm guessing an apache developer


only except, its a very complicated code and i don't know where to put it in/implement it. Any apache gurus know where this piece of code should be inserted? (for the full convo, look at URL above)

Or does anyone else have any other solutions to enable Large File Support? I want to keep apache the way i have it installed on my comp and it took forever to configure it to get it to work with mysql and php and cgi and perl and if i have to reinstall and reconfigure, its going to be a pain... can i edit some stuff in the httpd.conf file or something? I remember someone from a usenet talking about some magic CFLAGS for httpd to handle > 2GB?? Any solutions?
