Dear community,

i've got a problem with a ZK application setup.

I proxy a tomcat instance on another server through an Apache with mod_proxy to port 80. The VirtualHost configuration looks like this:

    ProxyPreserveHost On
    ProxyPass /app http ://appserver.sourcedomain.de/app timeout=600 Keepalive=On
    ProxyPassReverse /app http ://appserver.sourcedomain.de:8008/app 

    ProxyPassReverseCookieDomain appserver.sourcedomain.de www.targetdomain.de

Everything works fine but zkcomet request times out with the following webserver log entry:

[Tue Mar 03 19:46:44.414582 2015] [proxy_http:error] [pid 21939] (70007)The timeout specified has expired: [client MYIPADDRESS:53240] AH01102: error reading status line from remote server appserver.sourcedomain.de:8008, referer: http ://www.targetdomain.de/app/index.zul
[Tue Mar 03 19:46:44.414629 2015] [proxy:error] [pid 21939] [client MYIPADDRESS:53240] AH00898: Error reading from remote server returned by /app/zkcomet, referer: http  ://www.targetdomain.de/app/index.zul

Has someone got a hint for me why this is happening? I tried everything, also with AJP connector but the result is the same.

Regards, ceth85

P.S. sorry for the spaces in the URLs but my karma... you know...

Thanks vincentjian for your response!

I'm using ZK 7.0.4. Which setting should i use for disabling the timeout? ProxyTimeout and the timeout attribute by ProxyPass throws this error after restart apache: ProxyPass Timeout must be at least one second

Cheers ceth85

You can try adding "TimeOut -1" in your httpd.conf file directly.

There is a known issue for comet server push and apache timeout setting, check this tracker: http://tracker.zkoss.org/browse/ZK-2269.

If you are using ZK 6.5.x, please try upgrading to ZK 7.0.2 or later. Or you can turn off the timeout setting in apache by setting timeout value to -1.
