Issues using AllowMethods to restrict allowed request methods in httpd when using mod_cluster

[allowmethods:error] [pid 23485:tid 140288236439296] [client] AH01623: client method denied by server configuration: 'INFO' to /


  • JBoss Core Services (JBCS) httpd 2.4.x
    • mod_cluster
  • JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) 7.x
