I was confused by this so I copied the doc_root to my old server which is also running apache and loaded it with the same IE browser on the same PC and it worked perfect! The only variable was the server, everything else: the code and browser were kept constant.
I wanted to test this further so I loaded up firefox and went to the version that was *not* working and low and behold it worked without fail. I then went to the old *working* server and tested that and it worked *perfect* so now it looks like a browser issue....
I just dont understand why the combination of IE and That particular server yeilds terrible results.
Also, i read that it maybe a caching issue, but as far as i can tell neither server is issuing a no-cache header and the system times both servers and my PC are completly correct.
Anyway, the one thing i noticed about the server that *doesnt* work is that it sends an etag: afa9f08sdff(some garbage) and it also sends: Cache-Control: max-age=0
These headers go with every file, including the jpegs that are used in the mouseover. I am absolutly positive this is the cause, however I tried to NO avail to get it to stop sending those headers and it will not.
I tried disabling the following apache modules, and the reason i selected these modules was because I ran a grep -R "Cache-Control" * and grep -R "max-age" * in the apache source/modules directory to figure out which modules had those strings in them:
I also disabled:
mod_frontpage.c for sh.its and grins.
I then restarted the server and it still outputting the same headers as before....
Also, when I did the grep, the binary libphp4.a file matched on both strings, however i have found no documentation on php's website about this behavior...
Have any Ideas?
Thanks in advance.
