Name

request_entities

Synopsis

This directive determines how Squid handles GET and HEAD requests that have message bodies (entities). Such requests normally don’t contain bodies. There is some confusion about whether or not RFC 2616 allows entities in GET/HEAD requests. Squid denies such requests by default. If you would rather have Squid accept them, enable the request_entities directive.

Syntax
