Hello, I am trying to get a file up on a Puppet server, which supports a REST API briefly documented here:<> I get a "..timeout specified has expired: proxy: prefetch request body failed to" in apache's log. GETs do work, just PUTs fail. Config is Listen 8140 <Proxy balancer://puppetmaster> BalancerMember BalancerMember </Proxy> <VirtualHost *:8140> SSLEngine On SSLCipherSuite SSLv2:-LOW:-EXPORT:RC4+RSA SSLCertificateFile /var/lib/puppet/ssl/certs/server.pem SSLCertificateKeyFile /var/lib/puppet/ssl/private_keys/server.pem SSLCertificateChainFile /var/lib/puppet/ssl/ca/ca_crt.pem SSLCACertificateFile /var/lib/puppet/ssl/ca/ca_crt.pem SSLCARevocationFile /var/lib/puppet/ssl/ca/ca_crl.pem SSLVerifyClient require SSLVerifyDepth 1 SSLOptions +StdEnvVars RequestHeader set X-Client-DN %{SSL_CLIENT_S_DN}e RequestHeader set X-Client-Verify %{SSL_CLIENT_VERIFY}e <Location /> SetHandler balancer-manager Order allow,deny Allow from all </Location> ProxyPass / balancer://puppetmaster/ ProxyPassReverse / balancer://puppetmaster/ ProxyPreserveHost On ErrorLog /mirror/log/balancer_error_log CustomLog /mirror/log/balancer_access_log "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{SSL_CLIENT_S_DN}x\" \"%{User-Agent}i\"" </VirtualHost> and the perl code is { open my $up, "<", "$_[0]" or die "Something went wrong: ".$!; binmode $up; my $ck = Digest::MD5->new; $ck->addfile($up); close $up; my $req = HTTP::Request::StreamingUpload->new( PUT => "https://".$server."/file_bucket_file/md5/".$ck->hexdigest, path => $_[0], headers => HTTP::Headers->new( 'Content-Type' => 'application/binary', 'Content-Length' => -s $_[0], 'Accept' => 's', ), ); my $res = $ua->request($req); die "Something went wrong: ".$res->status_line unless $res->is_success; return $res->content; } SSL handshake does work, but the puppet process doesn't seem to receive any data (I'm tailing its debug log).

Could be an Apache bug, some googling for the error message showed an old bug ("mod_proxy fails to send post request to backend server"), usually blamed on IE. Another style of invocation does work: my $req = HTTP::Request::StreamingUpload->new( PUT => "https://$server", callback => sub { shift @chunk }, headers => HTTP::Headers->new( 'Content-Type' => 'application/binary', 'Content-Length' => 9, 'Accept' => 's', ), ); my $res = $ua->request($req); My httpd is 2.2.15 though (RH6), and it should have been fixed in 2.2.9
