I was unable to compile the latest version (2.0.7) of the Nginx upload
module on a 64-bit system. I tried with both Nginx 0.6.32 and 0.7.19.
I received a warning about a comparison of a signed and unsigned int and
Nginx will abort compilation if a warning is encountered.
I was able to successfully compile Nginx with the upload module by
line 981 in ngx_http_upload_module.c from:
if(u->output_file.offset + len > ulcf->max_file_size)
if((unsigned int)(u->output_file.offset + len) >
My C is pretty rusty and I’m hardly acquainted with the Nginx and upload
So my questions is: was this the right thing to do?
