Can Apache handle a file > 2Gb?

I remember having problems trying to serve a DVD iso though Apache not
too long ago. I think the problem was with APR so svn probably has the
same problem and your version is a little dated.

A quick search turned this up:

But it wasn't checked into the repository or scheduled to be checked in.
It was just sitting in the working copy?

- That is correct. It was just sitting in the directory. When the file
was removed from the directory, everything else worked afterwards.

update -u hmmmm. This might be a good time to upgrade apr and svn. Be
sure to try the flag given in that post if you want to include large
files in your repository.

- Sorry.. 'status -u'... Bad day today.. :)
