Hi,

I'm wandering what the maximum URI length is, and if URI segments being used as arguments to a controller function count towards the browsers GET length limit? I think most browsers cap there GET parameter length to about 2000?

Currently if my total URI length (inc. https://domain/folder/controller/function/argument) exceeds around 1560 characters I get a forbidden message.

'Forbidden You don't have permission to access /folder/controller/function/argument on this server'

If I trim the characters back to under around 1550~1560 it works fine again. I realise 1500+ is alot anyway, which is why I was wandering if URI counts towards the GET limit.

Has anyone experienced this problem? Do I need to rely on weird hidden forms so I can post the data forward?

BTW: I'm using the URI protocol AUTO in the config

2048 but some browsers can go over that, if you stick to 2000 it should work in all the major browsers

Would the forbidden message be because of this limit? It seems more like a server issue?

Is there a way to extend this limit? Where is this limit imposed in the code? I'd like to find it and change it.
