Ticket #458 (closed defect: fixed)
MapServer hangs with Apache 2.x

Description (last modified by dmorissette) (diff)
This problem was found while working on bug 418, but since this could affect many users I think it deserves its own bug so that the issue is properly documented. Apache 2.x has a problem with CGIs that hang when they generate more than 4096 bytes of output to stderr: http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=22030 When --enable-debug is enabled MapServer can generate quite a bit of output to stderr which causes it to hang when running under Apache 2.x. The current version is Apache 2.0.47 and the stderr bug is still not fixed so we need to work around the problem. Note that this problem does not affect Apache 1.3.x users, it happens only with Apache 2.x. This will affect all versions of MapServer but we will implement the workaround only in 4.0.1 (current stable release) and 4.1 (CVS dev).
