I've had a handful of complaints from my website users that they're seeing
the error below when trying to access an installation of the MyBB forum.


Error 413

Request Entity Too Large

Guru Meditation:

XID: 190197240

Varnish cache server



I spoke to one customer who was experiencing this error using IE8/XP (which
I couldn't replicate on various IE8/XP PCs), and we tried restarting Varnish
3 with:


-p http_req_hdr_len=8192 \

-p http_resp_hdr_len=8192 \


in the startup DAEMON OPTS. Unfortunately it didn't clear the error for her.
Is there anything else I should be trying?
