Subject RE: [users@httpd] Setting NOCACHE on downloadable executables
Date Wed, 08 Jan 2003 09:49:41 GMT
Not so trivial - Check out
(which is the HTTP 1.1 RFC) and look for section 14.9 - Cache control.
This defines what cache control headers you can put in the response.
You'd then have to use mod_headers to set the appropriate header.
