Here is my problem: after default installation of apache2 for Ubuntu it's started to retrieve old pages for Trac, for example, I made a small changes (simply edit page) in trac-wiki section, push "Submit" button, and after the page updated I saw a page with new changes, but when I click on "Edit" button again on the same page, it gave me the edit page without the last changes (cache gave me back the old page - and I have to press F5 to update the page)...

PS: when I configured HTTPS on my server, the problem for HTTPS content disappeared!

Here is what I'm using:

  1. System: Linux hostname 2.6.32-24-generic #39-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jul 28 05:14:15 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
  2. Trac 0.12
  3. Python 2.6.5
  4. Apache 2:

$ apache2 -V
Server version: Apache/2.2.14 (Ubuntu)
Server built:   Apr 13 2010 20:22:19
Server's Module Magic Number: 20051115:23
Server loaded:  APR 1.3.8, APR-Util 1.3.9
Compiled using: APR 1.3.8, APR-Util 1.3.9
Architecture:   64-bit
Server MPM:     Worker
  threaded:     yes (fixed thread count)
    forked:     yes (variable process count)
Server compiled with....
 -D APACHE_MPM_DIR="server/mpm/worker"
 -D APR_HAVE_IPV6 (IPv4-mapped addresses enabled)
 -D SUEXEC_BIN="/usr/lib/apache2/suexec"
 -D DEFAULT_PIDLOG="/var/run/"
 -D DEFAULT_SCOREBOARD="logs/apache_runtime_status"
 -D DEFAULT_ERRORLOG="logs/error_log"
 -D AP_TYPES_CONFIG_FILE="/etc/apache2/mime.types"
 -D SERVER_CONFIG_FILE="/etc/apache2/apache2.conf"

Thanks for advice!

PSS: If you need some more outputs of some configures, just comment me, and I append them to my question post!

Try ctrl+f5 in your browser. Might be the browser that is caching the page and not the webserver. – Espennilsen Sep 2 '10 at 7:53
@Espennilsen: I have 100% sure, that it's not the browser cache. – mosg Sep 2 '10 at 8:01
If it's the browser caching, that might be because the server tells it that caching is safe... – JanC Sep 2 '10 at 10:29
@Jan Claeys Sorry, but I have not got you post... In my case, as I mentioned this is NOT the browser cash... Thanks. – mosg Sep 2 '10 at 11:57
Does this problem appear on other browsers, on other computers? Check that first before delving into Apache configuration. – Andrew M. Sep 2 '10 at 12:29

Solution: the problem was in corporate proxy. If I'm using other Internet Providers, the problem disappeared!
