I'm no apache / server expert so please forgive any errors and I hope those of you with more experience can point me in the right direction.
I seem to be running into some problems with file caching caused by incorrect expiry settings despite my htaccess and server being mostly configured correctly, or so I thought.
After running /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -l I can see all the apache modules needed except mod_mime.
As I'm running PHP5, mod_mime has been deprecated to a PECL module "FileInfo" which I have installed - however I'm not sure how to replace my mod_mime rules (htaccess) to use this module correctly.
It also seems that mod_expires settings are not being applied even though mod_expires is installed and htaccess rules are configured.
So, here are my questions;
1) How do I convert my setup which is relying on mod_mime and has htaccess configured for mod_mime to now use "FileInfo" - or will the mime associations happen automatically as files are processed ? Here is an extract of the mod_mime settings.
Well, good. If we wait a little longer, will you get it all figured out? Do post your solutions if so :)
The people hereabouts who really understand apache can be counted on the fingers of one hand-- and they all seem to be taking the weekend off. I, for example, don't speak a word of apache but can generally fake it because I'm pretty fluent in Regular Expressions. Your problem is clearly outside "faking-it" territory.
