Description Pierre Amadio 2004-01-20 04:49:49 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.5)
Gecko/20031007 Firebird/0.7

Description of problem:
When using mod_proxy, the http headers sent to the client does not
countains the headers that are supposed to be set with mod_expires.

This works with an apache 2.0.48 compiled from apache.org sources.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install an local apache listening on port 8088
2.add the following configurations directive in the rpm based apache
listening on port 80:

     ExpiresActive On
     ExpiresDefault A600
     ProxyPass /
     ProxyPassReverse /

so that every uri requested are supposed to be proxyed from the apache
running on port 8088.

3. look at the header generated:
wget -S


Actual Results:  no Expires headers set.

Expected Results:  Expires header present in server answer:

10 Expires: Tue, 20 Jan 2004 10:59:30 GMT

I have been testing this patch, in our test environment, for over a 
week now, with no detected problems, our test set up is a simple 
reverse proxy which adds expires headers to requested content.

Thanks for the patch,


Gareth Evans
