    I have reduced it to 8k.

    to stop that "error", you should increase to 12k,16k ... etc.

    however this may not be a error but security feature. if there is a URL with length exceed 8k, probably an attack to your web site. in normal case, the length of a URL is far less than 8k.

    Yes, I'm bumping an old thread ... but it's exactly the same issue, and I have the same question that was left unanswered in 2013.
    We are trying to delete a lot of posts in WordPress, and that means really long URLs. My Max Request URL Length was already at 8192 which is labelled as the hard limit. You've recommended changing it to 16k or larger, but that's not possible. What should we do?
