Mongrell issues "HTTP element REQUEST_URI is longer than the


#1

Hi every one,

I use a couple of urls that base64 encode a rather complex query into
the URI.
I get this error on mongrel “HTTP element REQUEST_URI is longer than
the 512 allowed length”. Is there any way around this ?!?

Any input is appreciated.

Thank you,

no idea if there is a better way, but POST should let you pass a
biiiiiiig request, so maybe you can try posting instead of getting the
url.

i know the idea after POST is not this, since you are making a query and
not changing the status of the server, but it’s easy and it should work.

You might try passing the query, or the search terms to construct it,
along
as params.

Just a thought. Probably not one you haven’t already thought of :wink:
