1.3.14. As far as I can tell, the make was fine, no errors. I’m
against openSSL of the system: OpenSSL 1.0.1c 10 May 2012, on my CentOS
server (OVH Kernel). Server has ok amount of RAM, at least 20GB is free.

HTTP 500 error. The errors logs aren’t the most useful,. indicating

Here’s the error log snippet pertinent:
2013/03/11 22:32:08 [emerg] 10589#0: *1 malloc(18446744073709551615)
(12: Cannot allocate memory), client: ****, server: ****, request: “GET
HTTP/1.1”, host: ****
Any ideas why nginx is trying to allocate so much memory?
