Accept-ranges header - Geebee - 08-01-2013 04:59 AM

We are sorting out all headers while changing from squid to nginx as a cache.

Just checking; are there any drawbacks to give the 'Accept-ranges header' with all binary files on the server? Is it wise to use it?

If your server really accepts ranges then by all means, it allows for resumed downloads.

I will double check that Patrick, thanks for the reply!
