    Apache proxy server error: received an invalid response from an upstream server


    Hi,

    I am using OAS10.3.3.3 to host my application, Apache2.0 Webserver as a reverse proxy. Siteminder is installed on apache for SSO. When i am trying to upload one excel file through apache and siteminder it throws following error message.

    Proxy Error

    The proxy server received and invalid response from an upstream server.
    The proxy server couldnot handle the request POST/XXXX/XXX.

    Reason: Error reading from remote server.


    But i can upload this file directly to the application (using direct url).
    And to make things worse, this error is coming up only occasionally.

    Thanks much for your help.

    - Venkat

    Welcome to Dev Shed.

    Periodic issues are very difficult to troubleshoot. Does it have to do with the size of the file or any other variable you could think of?

    Is there an error in the error log of the upstream server indicating why it couldn't handle the upload?

    Explain your problem instead of asking how to do what you decided was the solution.
