Caching HeadersΒΆ

Prerequisites: None

You can configure HTTP caching headers based on request and response properties. This configuration approach is more convenient than manually setting cache headers and an alternative to setting caching headers through annotations.

Set caching headers under the cache_control configuration section, which consists of a set of rules. When the request matches all criteria under match, the headers under headers will be set on the response.

A Response may already have cache headers set, e.g. by the controller method. By default, the options that already exist are not overwritten, but additional headers are added. You can force to overwrite the headers globally by setting cache_control.defaults.overwrite: true to true, or on a per rule basis with overwrite: true under headers.

This is an example configuration. For more, see the cache_control configuration reference.

# app/config/config.yml
fos_http_cache:
    cache_control:
        defaults:
            overwrite: true
        rules:
            # only match login.example.com
            -
                match:
                    host: ^login.example.com$
                headers:
                    cache_control: { public: false, max_age: 0, s_maxage: 0 }
                    etag: true
                    vary: [Accept-Encoding, Accept-Language]

            # match all actions of a specific controller
            -
                match:
                    attributes: { _controller: ^AcmeBundle:Default:.* }
                headers:
                    cache_control: { public: true, max_age: 15, s_maxage: 30 }
                    last_modified: "-1 hour"

            -
                match:
                    path: ^/$
                headers:
                    cache_control: { public: true, max_age: 64000, s_maxage: 64000 }
                    etag: true
                    vary: [Accept-Encoding, Accept-Language]

            # match everything to set defaults
            -
                match:
                    path: ^/
                headers:
                    overwrite: false
                    cache_control: { public: true, max_age: 15, s_maxage: 30 }
