HcExpiresHeader

IIS 6.0

The HcExpiresHeader property specifies the content of the HTTP Expires header that is sent with all requested compressed files, along with the Cache-Control header discussed in HcCacheControlHeader.

The combination of HcExpiresHeader and HcCacheControlHeader ensures that older clients and proxy servers do not attempt to cache compressed files.

Neither the header specified by HcCacheControlHeader, nor the header specified by HcExpiresHeader, is sent with the response if the metabase property HcSendCacheHeaders is set to false.

The World Wide Web Publishing Service (WWW service) must be restarted before any changes to this property take effect.
