File is corrupt using CIFS mount and Apache

I have an Apache server that has to mount to a Windows 2003 file server.

I mounted the drive as normal, and could open files using Linux. The issue arose when trying to open

the file when servered through Apache.

After much research the answer is to modify the httpd.conf file

File this line EnabledSendfile and change it to

EnabledSendfile: off

I just had to take the # from this line, restart Apache and it should all be working


OS – Fedora release 10 (Cambridge)

Web server – httpd-2.2.14-1.fc10.i386


Hope this helps
