POST to static URL and CLOSE_WAIT

Hi,
we are using the following in our configuration to handle HTTP POST to
static files:

Allow POST to static URLs

error_page 405 = $uri;

This works, but during load, we start to see a lot of connections in
CLOSE_WAIT state,
until we finally run out of connections.

Any idea why we see this and what can be done to avoid this?

We are running nginx/0.7.65 on Ubuntu 10.04:

/Jan

We use something like this and we don’t have problems

location ~*

^.+.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|css|zip|tgz|gz|rar|bz2|doc|xls|exe|pdf|ppt|txt|tar|mid|midi|wav|bmp|rtf|js)$
{
if ($request_method !~ ^(GET|HEAD)$ ) {
return 405;
}

     root   /var/www;

}

Thanks, but I’m not sure how something like this enables posting to
static files?
