just found out apache won't throw 304 not modified statuses if the content is gzipped, absolutely hilarious

"you can either compress your content or cache it but not both, would be too easy"

@shitpost By default, the gzip command puts a timestamp in the output, so compressing the same data twice gives different outputs. Could this be related?

@val nope, made sure that the stuff behind apache doesn't gzip

"DeflateAlterETag NoChange" would probably fix it but it's an apache 2.5 directive httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/en
