Fixed In Version: httpd-2.4.6-40.el7_2.2
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
In a caching proxy configuration, the mod_cache module would treat content as stale if the Expires header changed when refreshing a cached response. As a consequence, an origin server returning content without a fixed Expires header would not be treated as cacheable. The mod_cache module has been fixed to ignore changes in the Expires header when refreshing content. As a result, such content is now cacheable, improving performance and reducing load at the origin server.
