Ok, bear with me, this is kind of hard to explain.

I have an AIX server ( that is running apache 2.2.11. With static files (css, html), I can upload a file to the server, and when I call it, either directly or not, it doesn't show me the updated file, for at least 10 minutes. Then it appears. The apache modules mod_cache, mod_mem_cache and mod_disk_cache are installed, but I have disabled the cache in the httpd.conf file (passes syntax check as well), and it continues to be a problem.

Any ideas what I need to change? The server loads php and cgi files perfectly fine.

Setting EnableSendfile to off in httpd.conf e.g.

Enablesendfile Off

solved the problem.
