Bug Description

If the BalancerMember directive contains a URL with a hostname longer than X characters, we fail as follows:

BalancerMember worker hostname (65.character.host.name) too long

The size of the hostname needs to be raised so it is RFC1035 compliant.

Bug fixed upstream at https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=62085, patches backported to v2.4.30:


(Both patches required, first is extended by second).

Just triaging right now, but I agree.
And in Bionic we only have 2.4.29 at the moment.

If you have a test at hand could you also outline a steps to reproduce?
Those will eventually come handy to verify the fix.
