Subject Re: Questions on modules to provide cache functions for Apache
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2007 22:41:28 GMT
I use live http headers to catch the headers. I listed them below. Well 
I found that php file has not been given the http headers. So is this 
the problem for not caching the response produced by it ? Then how can I 
handle this problem ? Also, is there some mod_cache log that I could 
refer ? Thanks.
