Thanks for the update. If you manage to narrow it down to a new code sample I'd love to see it.

I verified that the example code I just provided does not work if nginx 0.7.67-3+squeeze2 from Debian is proxying connections to Anarki with the following configuration:

  server {
    listen 80;
    server_name  somewebsite.com;
    access_log /var/log/nginx/somewebsite.com.access.log;

    location / {
      proxy_pass        http://somewebsite.com:2012;
      proxy_set_header  X-Real-IP  $remote_addr;
    }
  }

That's really useful, thanks. A quick google for 'nginx post length limit' brings up this link: http://www.rockia.com/2011/01/how-to-change-nginx-file-uploa... which suggests changing client_max_body_size. Does that help?

Thanks for the link.

I tried setting the following in /etc/nginx/sites-available/somewebsite.com:

  server {
  # ... various vars as in http://arclanguage.org/item?id=16317 plus the following:
  client_max_body_size 10m;
  }
I also tried with client_max_body_size 10000000;

In both cases uploading the bzip2 file hangs.

I also tried setting client_max_body_size in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf but there get a different error:

  Restarting nginx: [emerg]: unknown directive "client_max_body_size" in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:31
So it doesn't work for me. The documentation at http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_core_module.html#clie... suggests that the default value is 1m. This means that bzip2, which is under 1m, should be uploaded without a problem.

Update: Tried setting "client_max_body_size 32m;" under the "http" section in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf but posting still hangs.

Ok I finally got around to trying to replicate this, and you're right, that setting doesn't seem to make a difference.

Sorry this took so long.

I assume you restarted the nginx service?

Yes. Does upload in Anarki behind nginx work for you?
