    I have a client that just switched to us, and they have a cgi script that they use the back button often on.

    Everytime they click back, they get :

    Warning :Page has Expired

    on IE, but it works on other browsers...

    I tested on the old server ( apache, not Cpanel ), and it works on IE.

    I tested on other CGI scripts, and they ALL do that on my server ( I only use PHP scripts ).

    Is there ANYTHING I can do short of changing the CGI scripts ?

    cpanel is not a webserver. it is simply management software.

    your machine most likely is using apache as an HTTP server.

    D'oh.... I am fully aware of that !

    When I said "Apache not Cpanel" I meant of course :

    "They are running Apache ( like I am ) but not CPanel".

    I have tried setting this option :

    #
    # CacheNegotiatedDocs: By default, Apache sends "Pragma: no-cache" with each
    # document that was negotiated on the basis of content. This asks proxy
    # servers not to cache the document. Uncommenting the following line disables
    # this behavior, and proxies will be allowed to cache the documents.
    #
    CacheNegotiatedDocs

    But it still doesn't work.

    Until I find a better solution, I am using get instead of post, but nice a password is passed, it is not a great solution...

    Anyone knows an options that can be changed in httpd.conf to fix the IE problem ?
