Lighttpd: Set Cache-Control: public, max-age Headers For Caching Purpose

Posted on in Categories last updated November 9, 2012

I would like to use the Cache-Control header field to specify directives that MUST be obeyed by all caching mechanisms such as a proxy server and browsers. This will help to reduce latency and network traffic for my static assets served by lighttpd web-server. How do I set Cache-Control: public, max-age=SEC using Lighttpd web-server under Unix like operating systems?
