Hi people, this is my first post in the forum.

I maintain my VPS, which serves as a web server. It runs Apache 2.4 and in httpd.conf I have these directives (in that order):

Code:
Include /etc/apache2/modules.d/*.conf
Include /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf


Inside /etc/apache2/modules.d/ there's a conf file with this content:

Code:
<IfModule mod_expires.c>

    ExpiresActive on
    ExpiresDefault                                      "access plus 1 month"

    ExpiresByType application/javascript                "access plus 1 month"
    ExpiresByType application/x-javascript              "access plus 1 month"
    ExpiresByType text/javascript                       "access plus 1 month"

</IfModule>


Inside /etc/apache2/vhosts.d, there's a vhost configuration file, where I have:

Code:
<VirtualHost *:443>
    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
        <LocationMatch "^/(piwik|matomo)\.js$">
            ExpiresDefault "access plus 5 days"
        </LocationMatch>
    </IfModule>
</VirtualHost>


Now, when I access piwik.js or matomo.js, it should return a expiring date 5 days later from the accessing time, however it returns a month later.

Why doesn't this LocationMatch directive work and the generic ExpiresByType directive takes precedence? If I change the ExpiresByType text/javascript "access plus 1 month" line to ExpiresByType text/javascript "access plus 1 week", I see that the expiring date is a week later. Shouldn't the LocationMatch directive work and return a small expiring date for these two javascript files?

ExpiresDefault Context: server config, virtual host, directory, .htaccess

in other words: it does not work with LocationMatch. You rather use Directory
