Hi All,
I'm trying to disable caching for a specific url.

In httpd.conf I have configured
Code:
CacheEnable /init/modules/

so that whenever someone requests a file from that folder it will be cached.

I am having a problem with disabling caching for "/init/modules/" specifically (meaning that "/init/modules/fileName" should cache").

The following will cancel caching of all that folder:
Code:
"CacheDisable /init/modules"


I am trying to use
Code:
"SetEnv no-cache /init/modules/"

but that cancels caching altogether for all folders. (I also tried wrapping the uri with double quotes. i.e. "/init/modules/" - didn't help).

The only thing that worked was:
Code:
SetEnvIf THE-REQUEST "GET /init/modules/ HTTP/1.1" no-cache=/init/modules/


This solution is to risky for me and I believe that using
Code:
"SetEnv no-cache /init/modules/"

should work.

Where am I wrong?

Thank you,
Gadi

what is in /init/modules that shall be not be cached, if /init/modules/fileName shall be cached?

CacheDisable url-string
The CacheDisable directive instructs mod_cache to not cache urls at or below url-string.

There's only one file there. It is cached whether we access it trough
Code:
/init/modules/

or
Code:
/init/modules/fileName


The thing is that if I use
Code:
/init/modules/

the file is cached and all other attempts of accessing the file with
Code:
/init/modules/fileName

result in getting the cached file. Even if the original file had changed.

So I would like to allow access to
Code:
/init/modules/

because it happens once at the beginning of each session, but to disable caching of this url.

Thanks.
