Handler: Static Content
-----------------------
The **file** handler serves files from its document root. No more, no
less.
[[parameters]]
Parameters
~~~~~~~~~~
[cols="25%,25%,50%",options="header"]
|===================================================
|Parameters |Type |Description
|`iocache` |Boolean |Optional. Default: `Enabled`.
|===================================================
By default it will use an internal I/O cache to improve the server
performance.
If you don't want to use it with a directory just unset it using this
parameter.
It is a good idea to disable to I/O cache if the content of the
directory changes often.
[[examples]]
Examples
~~~~~~~~
Lets imagine your virtual server DocumentRoot points to /var/www.
[cols="25%,75%"]
|===================================================
|Handler | `Static Content`
|Document Root | No custom Document Root will fall back to the default one defined for the virtual server.
|Use I/O cache | `Enabled`

This is a simple example that will make Cherokee able of serving each
CSS file under /var/www or any subdirectory with the IO/cache setting
enabled. This would only not apply if a `final` rule with higher
priority specified otherwise.
