Description Joe 2016-08-05 22:25:16 UTC
Description of problem:
If custom error responses are configured with ErrorDocument and mod_proxy_http or mod_proxy_ajp is used, httpd will wait for the configured proxytimeout before serving the error document.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Create the following test configuration:
ErrorDocument 404
ProxyErrorOverride on
ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open in a webbrowser

Actual results:
It takes 20 seconds until the redirect to is executed.
The time this takes can be "adjusted" by changing the proxy timeout parameter, for example 5 seconds: ProxySet timeout=5

Expected results:
The redirect to is executed immediately.

Additional info:
The same error also occurs for ErrorDocument 500, 503 etc. configurations.
The bug was already fixed upstream:
