Subject RE: [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.4 caching problem
Date Mon, 22 Dec 2008 00:25:02 GMT
Thanks for responding to my question. 

I've since downloaded firefox. When I tried to install LiveHttpHeaders,
it says that it's incompatible with the current version of firefox. 

I started firefox without importing any history, bookmarks, etc from IE,
but unfortunately, when I loaded the modified webpage, it displayed the
old version. The webserver runs on a virtual machine on the same
physical machine as the browser. The virtual machine is networked via
TCP. Between the browser and the server, there's a router, but the
virtual server for Internet users is disabled. So, the only two players
here are the browser and the apache server. 

More info ...
I changed the style sheet, and reloaded the page. The access.log entry
is:

"GET /css/reports.css HTTP/1.1" \
200 3964 "http://192.168.0.137/headerframe.html" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows;
U; Wind\
ows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.5) Gecko/2008120122 Firefox/3.0.5"

The file size of reports.css is:

[paul@Develop:/var/www/css]l reports.css
-rw-r--r-- 1 paul dev 3985 2008-12-22 09:36 reports.css

So, it seems that apache is recognising that the content has been
modified but is serving a cached version of the file. 

Do you have any further suggestions?

In my (quite deep) experience, with 99% probability it is not a problem 
of Apache, but it is a problem of either not really clearing your 
browser's cache, or of a proxy server in-between that keeps the old 
versions in its cache.
These things can really be a pain.

(And I'm just saying this so that you would not go and spend maybe a lot

of time investigating an issue in the wrong place).

First try the obvious : press the SHIFT button on your keyboard, and at 
the same time click the reload icon.

If that doesn't help, clear your browser cache again, close your 
browser, open it again, clear the cache again, and reload the page, if 
needed by the method above again.

If that doesn't help, get Firefox if you do not have it yet, and add to 
it the LiveHttpHeaders add-on/plugin.  It adds an item in Tools, call it

up, and without closing that window, go back to the main window and call

the page again.  Then go back to the LiveHttpHeaders window, and follow 
the exchange between the browser and the server.
If you are seeing answers from the server with code 30x (not_modified 
etc..), then you still have an issue with the browser cache.
