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

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • We use mod_cluster and are trying to use the AllowMethods directive to limit allowed methods on httpd. When doing this, JBoss is no longer able to join our mod_cluster balancer. httpd logs show errors like the following:
[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
