Description Co-Advisor 2005-06-06 21:22:03 UTC
Looks like a possible RFC 2616 MUST violation. Apache cache ignores max-age cache-control directive in the request (possibly only when the response has another max-age, which indicated that the response is still fresh). See attached traces for details and ways to reproduce some of the violations mentioned above. Test case IDs in the trace link to human-oriented test case description and RFC quotes, if available. Note: A related fixed bug 15869 deals with the response max-age. This bug is about the request max-age.
Comment 1 Co-Advisor 2005-06-06 21:32:16 UTC
Created attachment 15318 [details] test case trace Note that the response has its own max-age. The response is fresh according to its own max-age, but not according to the request max-age. RFC 2616 says request max-age MUST be honored here. We do not know whether the response max-age is a factor (or all request max-age directives are ignored).

Please help us to refine our list of open and current defects; this is a mass update of old and inactive Bugzilla reports which reflect user error, already resolved defects, and still-existing defects in httpd. As repeatedly announced, the Apache HTTP Server Project has discontinued all development and patch review of the 2.2.x series of releases. The final release 2.2.34 was published in July 2017, and no further evaluation of bug reports or security risks will be considered or published for 2.2.x releases. All reports older than 2.4.x have been updated to status RESOLVED/LATER; no further action is expected unless the report still applies to a current version of httpd. If your report represented a question or confusion about how to use an httpd feature, an unexpected server behavior, problems building or installing httpd, or working with an external component (a third party module, browser etc.) we ask you to start by bringing your question to the User Support and Discussion mailing list, see [https://httpd.apache.org/lists.html#http-users] for details. Include a link to this Bugzilla report for completeness with your question. If your report was clearly a defect in httpd or a feature request, we ask that you retest using a modern httpd release (2.4.33 or later) released in the past year. If it can be reproduced, please reopen this bug and change the Version field above to the httpd version you have reconfirmed with. Your help in identifying defects or enhancements still applicable to the current httpd server software release is greatly appreciated.
