App ignores cached pages and re-caches them again and again


#1

I’m wondering if anyone has any ideas on what would cause rails to
write the cached page, but the app ignore the caches pages and instead
cache it again and again on every request?

I’m setting config.action_controller.page_cache_directory = RAILS_ROOT
+"/public/cache/", but it happens when I don’t do that as well.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

As a work around, symlink your cache dir to the dir where you want it

rm -rf /home/app/tmp/cache
ln -s /real/cache/dir /home/app/tmp/cache

You need to get the server to actually serve the pages from the
relocated
cache. This will depend on what server you’re running on. The only
configuration I’m familiar enough with is Apache. Editing the rewrite
conditions in public/.htaccess will get you want you want with it. You
might
try Googling for solutions on the other server platforms.
