Sorry, but I don't have php installed on my system. I tried to install it, but due to some reason i was not able to properly install it. But I suppose that what you want to suggest is that I should specify the http headers some where.I saw this link:
and so did the following:
1)uncommented LoadModule expires_module modules/mod_expires.so
LoadModule headers_module modules/mod_headers.so
in the conf file.
2)added the following code in the httpd.conf file:
# 1 YEAR - doesn't change often
Header set Cache-Control "max-age=300"
Header set Vary "Accept-Encoding"
3) Since expire and max age both are specified max age wont be considered and since expire is set to 1 year, so as i thought the pdf document should stay in cache for 1 year.
4) I restarted the server and opened the link localhost/ri/gdsf.pdf. I was again expecting that since I have set the expire header so this thing will be cached the cache root folder that I have specified. But the folder is empty means it has not cached anything.
I want to see how data being cached is stored in the cache root directory..What can I do to see it?????
