Apache2: When I down load a large file I get an Error.

When I download a large file (3+ gig) I get an Error.

Here is what I get the Apache Log file:

[Tue Nov 09 01:02:07 2004] [error] [client 10.1.1.79] (75)Value too large for defined data type: access to /bigfile.zip failed, referer: http://www.hostname.com/bigfile.zip

Anyone know what is causing this?  Is there a way to allow larger files?

Thanks,
Troy

There is a 2GB limit in content-length;  see the documentation on the LimitRequestBody directive:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/core.html#limitrequestbody

which doesn't allow the size to be more than 2GB in size.  LimitRequestBody allows you to make the limitation even smaller, but you cannot exceed 2GB.

You'd be better served using the ftp protocol for downloading large files.
