Mod_expires was already mentioned, but here's a link to the docs on how to
use it:

Another possible option (in lieu of mod_expires) would be to use .htaccess
to have Apache evaluate .html files as PHP, and use php_value
auto_prepend_file "/path/to/prepend_file.php" with prepend_file.php using
the PHP function header() to give an expiration header.

Subject: [thelist] Server Side Prevent Caching of Old Pages?

Just finished a site re-design, including re-naming/mapping html
pages.  A number of visitors to the site are still seeing the old
pages. If they clear their cache, they get the new pages.

I know the tips to instruct end users to clear their cache, or type a
bogus dynamic name (mydomain.com?abc), etc. to get the new content. Is
there anything I can do server side, ie. putting something in an
.htaccess file to force delivery of a non-cached page? The site is
just html on a unix/apache host.
