We noticed quite lots of "414 Request URI to large" messages in nginx error
logs for one of configured virtualhosts and decided to bump
large_client_headers_buffers directive in server (virtualhost) context.
According to wiki documentation at
directive should be accepted and evaluated in http AND server context.
Directive is accepted, but completely ignored and 414 issue remains. However,
problem is fixed if i move large_client_headers_buffers directive outside
server context to http context.
We're using nginx 0.8.37. Considering changelog issue should be also present
in 0.8.49, becouse there are only two mentions of large_client_headers_buffers
Where is bug: in implementation or documentation? Either way, it should be
