I am trying to set two different http headers for cache control for two different portions of our site.

These are the lines in my site.conf for the virtual host:

<Location ~ "^/(sub1|sub2|sub3|sub4)">
Header set Cache-Control max-age=60,public


<Location ~ "^/(sub5|sub6|sub7|sub8)">
Header set Cache-Control no-cache

I can see the headers set correctly for the first set of sub pages, but not for the second set.

I feel like I am missing something very small and obvious.

Any ideas?

Figured it out -- removed the quotes around the expression and the cache controls are being set correctly. Hopefully, this is helpful.
