Trying to upload big files (>= 500MB) fails quietly, dropping the user back to the home page.


This issue is reproducible on https://bioart.io/ but not locally.

There is an error in the Apache2 logs of the form:

Broken pipe: [client] AH01084: pass request body failed to (, referer: https://bioart.io/

It seems like the issue is the Apache2 configurations.

I tried adding the following to the VirtualHost definition, to no avail

Timeout 900
ProxyTimeout 900
KeepAliveTimeout 900
LimitRequestBody 53687091200

but it does not seem to change matters.



to the gunicorn configuration file fixed the issue.
