If you zip up the directory for the test result for one of the tests I can load it manually and take a look. Otherwise I'm about to look at the publish code anyway so it may be better to just wait a couple of hours.

ok, you should be able to publish now. The current publish code you have on your system will publish all of the test data but not video frames (not really an issue for this case). The fix was on the server so you shouldn't have to do anything.

If you also want to be able to publish filmstrips you'll need to grab the updated publish.php for your install: http://webpagetest.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/www/webpagetest/publish.php

Thanks,

Thanks Pat,

Yesterday I upgraded the machine to IE8, then downgraded back to IE7, and somehow, the test were ran successfully this morning, with faster repeat view result in compare to the first view. I am not sure what has changed.

Here is my old result which had the problem:

Here is my new result which has the correct result:
http://www.webpagetest.org/result/120615_7bc9b5b43936d9161e4bbf26e5b316f9/

I don't know what caused the problem corrected itself.

Anything except for user agent will prevent IE from caching it: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ieinternals/archive/2009/06/17/vary-header-prevents-caching-in-ie.aspx

You can Vary accept-encoding for text resources and it will work as well because that gets stripped out before the browser sees it but anything else will screw your caching.

OK I will have to read a bit more about that, thanks a lot for the quick replies! (and for webpagetest.org)
