Dear all,
            I have been using Apache 2.0.61 in Linux Kernel 2.6.15-gentoo-r1 on Gentoo LInux, now i have 2.8gb file to offer on my http site, but http is not showing the 2gb file to users. Whereas i can see the 2gb file on my server.
         How do i enable "large file support" of more than 2gb on Apache-2.0.61? I cann't upgrade to apache 2.2 due to lots of configuration files.. Can somebody give me solution for this problem ?

    Check your httpd.conf file for "LimitRequestBody"

    If you have something like:
    LimitRequestBody 524288

    the limit is 512K, you can change the value (in bytes, eg 700M=700X1024X1024)

    then restart apache

    It works if your version supports more than 2gb files. check the log file for error
