Apache Modules

Contact: Nick Holmes

See also mod_rest_cache

to provide a mechanism to store content in a local disk cache that has been retrieved from another web server (or 2nd tier), and to provide a REST-like HTTP interface to remove specific items from that cache.


The modules in the mod_ssi_func suite were founded to support functions based on mod_include and related to the way pages are built on It was developed to supply an API that would be familiar to other users of Apache's mod_include. This was in the hope that it would be included in future versions of the main distribution of Apache. For this reason the BBC has released the mod_ssi_func suite under the Apache License.


The modules have been developed to work with apache 2.0.x

Server-side includes should be enabled in the conf for the file type you are using, and mod_include should be loaded.

The following lines should then be added to the conf (based on the default compilation of the modules).

LoadModule ssi_func_module  modules/
LoadModule ssi_func_rnd_module  modules/
LoadModule ssi_func_math_module  modules/
LoadModule ssi_func_flastmod_module  modules/
LoadModule ssi_setsplitvars_module  modules/


Test files

If you install the modules and put these files on your site they will work to test the modules are installed properly
