Rails, lighttpd and the Expires header


#1

I have a controller that serves up images from a different location
from /public/images/ by using send_file or send_data on /media/thumbs/
38 for example

In lighttpd I have:

expire.url = ( “/media/” => “access 10 years”,
“/stylesheets/” => “access 10 years” ,
“/javascripts/” => “access 10 years”,
“/images/” => “access 10 years” )

The correct expires value is being set for /stylesheets/, /
javascripts/ and /images/ but it is not being set for /media/.

Any idea as to how I might get either:

  1. lighttpd to set the expires header
  2. rails to set the expires header for send_data and send_file

Unless I am doing it completely wrong, in which case so pointers would
be useful.

Thanks.

expires_in 10.years
