At long last, promote mod_cache and friends out of experimental/.

Also, take quick pass through docs files to remove experimental label for them.

Fix race conditions in mod_disk_cache by properly using the tempfile rather

than the data file. (We rename the tempfile when we're completed with the data

file which is an atomic operation.)

Part of the code assumed that it was using a temporary file; other parts

wrote directly to the body file - which was incorrect. So, clean up the

whole mess to be consistent and more correct.

Fix Expires (freshness) handling in mod_cache.

Previously, if the cached copy was stale, the response would go into an

indeterminate state. Therefore, the freshness check must be done before we

'accept' the response and, if it fails (i.e. stale), we can't allow any side


This caused a number of changes to how mod_disk_cache reads its headers as

ap_scan_script_header_err() purposely has side-effects and that's

unacceptable. So, factor out only what we need.

Also, remove the broken conditional filter code as you can't reliably alter the

filter list once the response is started. (Regardless, cache_select_url()

has the freshness checks now.)

Caching content from sources where Content-Length is not specified

(these were passed through uncached until now):

This needed additional checks for CacheMinFileSize and CacheMaxFileSize

after the response has completed. That means that we are checking at two

places now:

-> when the C-L is known, we check before we cache

-> when it is unknown we check "on-the-way" for CacheMaxFileSize, and

after caching completion for CacheMinFileSize

We now compare the actual size of the cached copy against the C-L

header, and discard it if the two don't match.

Improves the user friendliness of the CacheRoot processing

but doesn't avoid all of the runtime checks. It no longer

terminates during post-config processing. An error is logged

once per worker, indicating that the CacheRoot needs to be set.

Change the CacheRoot processing to check for a required

value at config time. This saves a lot of wasted processing

if the mod_disk_cache module is loaded but no CacheRoot

was provided. This fix also adds code to log an error

and avoid useless pallocs and procesing when the computed

cache file name cannot be opened. This also updates the

docs accordingly. [Paul J. Reder]
