<IfModule reqtimeout_module> # mod_reqtimeout limits the time waiting on the client to prevent an # attacker from causing a denial of service by opening many connections # but not sending requests. This file tries to give a sensible default # configuration, but it may be necessary to tune the timeout values to # the actual situation. Note that it is also possible to configure # mod_reqtimeout per virtual host. # Wait max 20 seconds for the first byte of the request line+headers # From then, require a minimum data rate of 500 bytes/s, but don't # wait longer than 40 seconds in total. # Note: Lower timeouts may make sense on non-ssl virtual hosts but can # cause problem with ssl enabled virtual hosts: This timeout includes # the time a browser may need to fetch the CRL for the certificate. If # the CRL server is not reachable, it may take more than 10 seconds # until the browser gives up. RequestReadTimeout header=20-40,minrate=500 # Wait max 10 seconds for the first byte of the request body (if any) # From then, require a minimum data rate of 500 bytes/s RequestReadTimeout body=10,minrate=500 </IfModule>
