Fatal error messages are cached by proxy servers
|Reported by:||justdave||Owned by:|
If your wordpress blog is behind a caching proxy server, error messages such as "the database connection could not be established" get cached, so even after the database problem is fixed, you still have an error until you go flush the proxy server or wait for it to expire.
I understand that it's a bit difficult for PHP to tell a server to send a 500 error, but perhaps some cache control headers could be added to tell it not to cache.
