Build Status


Experimental HTTP cache handling for eZ Platform.

This package aims at externalizing the HTTP cache handling of ezpublish-kernel. It is by default installed with ezplatform 1.8, but is not enabled in the AppKernel, as it is experimental.

Enabling the package

Add the package to app/AppKernel.php, before the EzPublishCoreBundle declaration:

    public function registerBundles()
        $bundles = array(
            // ...
            new FOS\HttpCacheBundle\FOSHttpCacheBundle(),
            new EzSystems\PlatformHttpCacheBundle\EzSystemsPlatformHttpCacheBundle(),
            new eZ\Bundle\EzPublishCoreBundle\EzPublishCoreBundle(),
            // ...

The package will replace the services from the kernel, thus enabling the new features, such as multi-tagging.

The application cache class needs to be customized. If you haven't changed the AppCache class, you can do so by setting the SYMFONY_HTTP_CACHE_CLASS environment variable for your PHP or web server user. If you use your own AppCache class, you will have to make it to extend from this class instead of from the CoreBundle's.

For PHP's internal server you can set it as shell environment variable before starting server:

export SYMFONY_HTTP_CACHE_CLASS='EzSystems\PlatformHttpCacheBundle\AppCache'

For Apache, with the default eZ Platform virtual host definition, uncomment the SetEnv lines for the two variables above in your virtualhost, and set the values accordingly:

SetEnv SYMFONY_HTTP_CACHE_CLASS='EzSystems\PlatformHttpCacheBundle\AppCache'

For Nginx, set the variables using fastcgi_param:

fastcgi_param SYMFONY_HTTP_CACHE_CLASS "EzSystems\PlatformHttpCacheBundle\AppCache";

Do not forget to restart your web server.

Usage with Varnish

For usage with Varnish see the dedicated document in docs/varnish


xkey header on ContentView responses

Responses from /content/view will be tagged based on their contents:

curl -i -X HEAD 'http://localhost:8000/'

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Host: localhost:8000
Connection: close
Cache-Control: public, s-maxage=60
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Vary: Cookie
Vary: Authorization
xkey: content-1
xkey: content-type-1
xkey: location-2
xkey: parent-1
xkey: path-1
xkey: path-2

Toggling of cache on ContentView responses

Responses from /content/view will be made cachable, and the shared max age will be set if it is enabled.

Purging of tagged HTTP cache on Repository operations

A set of Slots will send HTTP PURGE requests for each cache tag affected by write operations.
