Subject [users@httpd] How does mod_expires handle proxied Cache-control content ?
Date Thu, 02 Nov 2006 22:29:41 GMT
Hi all ,
I have an Apache 2.0 Reverse Proxy . One of my downstream servers is an IIS server with Expires
Header set to 12 hours for content . I have Apache configured with mod_expires as so (3600
seconds = 1 hour) 

ExpiresActive On
 ExpiresByType image/gif A3600
 ExpiresByType image/png A3600
 ExpiresByType image/jpeg A3600
 ExpiresByType text/css A3600
 ExpiresByType text/javascript A3600
 ExpiresByType application/x-javascript A3600
 ExpiresByType text/html A3600
 ExpiresByType text/xml A3600

How does Apache deal with the proxied IIS content ? Does it leave the Cache-control : max
age = 12hours ..or does it 
overwrite it with 1 hour ?
