Meaning what? You're using mod_cache?

What OS / Apache version?

The web pages are not displaying correctly as it is in the directories every time we updating the directories with new content. I'm not sure we are using mod_cache. How can we tell that mod_cache is being used?
we have suse 10 and apache 2.2
Thanks

I see what you mean. If you're not sure about mod_cache, then you're probably not using it. You can double check with:

# httpd -M

Actually, unless you have evidence to indicate otherwise, I think what you are describing is a client-side issue. Have your user(s) reload their browser, quit/restart their browser, or clear their browser cache if necessary.

With httpd -M command, it says command not found.
Intially we thougt the issue with client side and we cleared temp/cache/restart browser/reboot the system/delete history..but it doesnot help.
Thats the reson I want to see if we can delete cache on apache server if it exists.
It would also be great if can you think of any other thing causing the issue.

thanks

Maybe Suse names the Apache web server binary differently. I am not sure.

Could by any (or none) of:
# httpd -M
# apache -M
# apache22 -M

You need to be logged in as root with his full PATH (e.g.: su -) in order for that to work.

It would be a good idea to familiarize yourself with Suse's Apache 2.2 package, and where it keeps various files. Once you have done that, you should begin troubleshooting by watching Apache's access log. Are client requests going to the places you're expecting? etc.
