AJAX problem with Lighttpd and jQuery
While converting the environment of one of my business projects from Apache to Lighttpd, I experienced a problem, which didn't occur with Apache before. The following code worked fine in Aapache:
When executing the same request to Lighttpd, you receive the following error message:
411 - Length Required
The solution was pretty simple, thought I only found it because it was working in another place with a similar case. The solution is to add an empty POST-object to the request (which will then send the content-length header):
Hopefully this will help somone who experienced the same problem.
