Summary0011400: Apache 2.4.6 ignores Timeout Value in httpd.conf
DescriptionAn error slipped in the apache 2.4.6 version so that the Timeout is hardcoded to 30s and can't be configured. It has been fixed in 2.4.8.
the fix :

This is a major issue because on heavy loaded websites, especially ecommerce ones, you need to change this value or else your server may have many errors like "(70007)The timeout specified has expired:", which indicate that the communication has been interrupted because the delay has been exceeded, which could lead to major bugs on the website since code has not been executed like it should.

Is it planned to integrate the fix to the 2.4.6 version ?
Or do we have to wait that centos 7 upgrades its apache package to 2.4.8 ?

Any intel would be appreciated on this issue :)
Steps To ReproduceModify httpd.conf by adding a directive like "Timeout 180" and confirms that it is not applied.
TagsNo tags attached.

Please verify if the beta of RHEL 7.3 includes this fix. If it does not, file a bug against httpd in => RHEL => 7. Once RH releases an updated version, CentOS will inherit it automatically.

Just to say that after upgrading to Centos 7.1, I made an yum update httpd and got an update for the 2.4.6 Apache. The major version is still the same but now the timeout 30s is not hardcoded anymore, so it must have been fixed in minor patches.
