Hi @AEMnewbie ,

 

You can define the header limit in Apache config file - httpd.conf

LimitRequestLine 16384

This will increase the size to 16KB

 

Default value is 8KB

 

Please refer to below documentation

https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/en/mod/core.html#limitrequestline

There are other settings available too, like LimitRequestFields, LimitRequestFieldSize. Please use them as per your requirement.

 

Thanks,

Chitra

Hi Chitra,

 

I couldn't find the LimitRequestLine in the httpd.conf file under etc/httpd/conf?

 

Please let me know where can I find the header size?

 

Thanks,
