Subject RE: [users@httpd] Caching Images
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2005 02:58:06 GMT
The idea is to have the images be cached (even in memory if possible) so that it is super fast
as I am running this on my PC that I use for other things. And I only have 1 GB of memory.

It is my understanding from reading posts that mod_cache relies on the expire statement. Images
will not have that so I was wondering how to cache only them. This is a phpBB forum with oscommerce.
Oscommerce more than phpBB has images.
