Since switching to SSL, we’ve been getting a ton of these messages in
the apache error log:
[Wed Jan 17 19:19:05 2007] [error] (70007)The timeout specified has
expired: proxy: prefetch request body failed to 127.0.0.1:8002
(127.0.0.1) from ()
These happen exclusively with IE6 ajax requests. The user then sees
our spinner icon infinitely, eventually apache thrown a scary looking
internal error page back. Needless to say a fairly large % of our
users use IE6 so this is pretty serious for us.
We use apache2.2.3 and mod_proxy + mod_proxy_balancer -> mongrel
cluster. Anyone seen this before or know what’s going on?
