stream request body using HTTP/1.1 Transfer-Encoding: chunked
(Note: if backend proxy target does not support HTTP/1.1,
then do not use server.stream-request-body = 1 or 2)
If not streaming to backend, collect request body
(now supporting Transfer-Encoding: chunked from client
and then sending with Content-Length to backend)
"Lighty returns HTTP 411 Length Required with proxy and streaming requests/reponses body"
NB: r->tmp_buf == srv->tmp_buf (pointer is copied for quicker access)
NB: request read and write chunkqueues currently point to connection
chunkqueues; per-request and per-connection chunkqueues are
not distinct from one another
con->read_queue == r->read_queue
con->write_queue == r->write_queue
NB: in the future, a separate connection config may be needed for
connection-level module hooks. Similarly, might need to have
per-request chunkqueues separate from per-connection chunkqueues.
Should probably also have a request_reset() which is distinct from
convert all log_error_write() to log_error() and pass (log_error_st *)
use con->errh in preference to srv->errh (even though currently same)
avoid passing (server *) when previously used only for logging (errh)
reduce initial buffer size if large POST to backend stored in temp files
regression in lighttpd 1.4.52
"[regression] lighttpd gets killed after uploading a big file"
quickly clear buffer instead of buffer_string_set_length(b, 0) or
buffer_reset(b). Avoids free() of large buffers about to be reused,
or buffers that are module-scoped, persistent, and reused.
(buffer_reset() should still be used with buffers in connection *con
when the data in the buffers is supplied by external, untrusted source)
provide standard types in first.h instead of base.h
provide lighttpd types in base_decls.h instead of settings.h
reduce headers exposed by headers for core data structures
do not expose <pcre.h> or <stdlib.h> in headers
move stat_cache_entry to stat_cache.h
reduce use of "server.h" and "base.h" in headers
fix segfault in reverse url-path mapping of Set-Cookie sent from backend
when proxy.header = ( "map-urlpath" => ( ... ) ) is used and there are
multiple Set-Cookie response headers with path= attributes which need to
be reverse mapped.
"Segfault with proxy-header map-urlpath"
centralize most waitpid() handling in core server, with hooks for
modules to be informed of pid and status when a process exits.
This enables faster discovery (and restart) of exited processes,
and also allows for lighttpd to manage backend processes in the
parent (master) process when server.max-worker > 0.
common codebase for socket backends, based off mod_fastcgi with
some features added for mod_proxy
(mostly intended to reduce code duplication and enhance code isolation)
mod_fastcgi and mod_scgi can now use fastcgi.balance and scgi.balance
for similar behavior as proxy.balance, but the balancing is per-host
and not per-proc. proxy.balance is also per-host and not per-proc.
mod_proxy and mod_scgi can now use proxy.map-extensions and
scgi.map-extensions, similar to fastcgi.map-extensions.
mod_fastcgi behavior change (affects only mod_status):
- statistics tags have been renamed from "fastcgi.*" to "gw.*"
"fastcgi.backend.*" -> "gw.backend.*"
"fastcgi.active-requests" -> "gw.active-requests"
("fastcgi.requests" remains "fastcgi.requests")
("proxy.requests" is new)
("scgi.requests" is new)
mod_scgi behavior change (likely minor):
- removed scgi_proclist_sort_down() and scgi_proclist_sort_up().
procs now chosen based on load as measured by num socket connnections
modules using gw_backend.[ch] are currently still independent modules.
If it had been written as a single module with fastcgi, scgi, proxy
implementations, then there would have been a chance of breaking some
existing user configurations where module ordering made a difference
for which module handled a given request, though for most people, this
would have made no difference.
Details about mod_fastcgi code transformations:
unsigned int debug -> int debug
fastcgi_env member removed from plugin_config
renamed "fcgi" and "fastcgi" to "gw", and "FCGI" to "GW"
reorganize routines for high-level and lower-level interfaces
some lower-level internal interfaces changed to use host,proc,debug
args rather than knowing about higher-level (app) hctx and plugin_data
