FastCGI rocks. My server is a lot faster, and it seems to be working pretty good. I haven't had any trouble with PHP yet, at least.

Anyway, in the "new features", I saw something named 'Custom HTTP headers'. What does it do? I can't find it in the console.

Thank you for your postive feedback about this new release.

The custom HTTP headers are in Console > Hosts - Configure > General > Advanced Parameters.

You can use them to add custom HTTP headers to some responses. There have several possible uses:

* Example one: you want to disable any caching for all your *.jpg files so that browsers always ask your server for them when needed: Add a Custom HTTP header which virtual path is /*.jpg, header name is Cache-Control and header value is no-cache .

* Example two: you have a large file /pages/large.html that you want to precompress and serve as Gzip compressed HTTP streams. Compress the file using Gzip, and rename large.html.gz to large.html (it's not actually a HTML file, but a compressed HTML file and here's the trick). Now add a new custom header such as:
- Virtual Path = /pages/large.html
- Header Name = Content-Encoding
- Header Value = gzip

Here's something cool you can do also.

- Virtual Path = /images/file.jpg
- Header Name = Content-Type
- Header Value = application/force-download

This will prompt you to download the JPEG instead of showing it on the browser,
which can also be useful for promping other files to be downloaded.

Hi Aprelium.

I was wondering if variables could be inserted into the custom headers, such as date and time variables or environmental variables.

pkSML,

This is not yet possible but we'll add this feature in the next version (we're already working on it).

That can already be done by using the header()-function in PHP.

Code:
<?php
header("server: " . time());
?>

Eh, not so useful. Just an example.

Thanks for the information, cmxflash.

I'm actually considering switching my site over to PHP if I can set up a dedicated server computer on my network. Hope, hope...!
