Subject Re: [users@httpd] Cannot download files over SSL in Internet Explorer - where is Cache-Control: no-cache header being set?
Date Fri, 05 Mar 2010 17:01:55 GMT
It *seems* that if I set the values of CachePragmaHeader or
CacheControlHeader to blank, the headers are not sent. In addition, if I
then delete my cached files in Internet Explorer it is working. I can open
Word and PDF files, and I don't have to have the Word or PDF application
already open, nor do I have to have BypassSSLNoCacheCheck registry setting
set to true.
Now I have to find out exactly what setting to put the headers to, because
it may not be the wisest option to drop them.
thanks very much for your help!
