    I was trying to increase the cache time via Netlify’s Custom Headers.

    I tried both with netlify.toml and _headers files and uploaded them in the root directory via the File manager.

    I confirmed that the custom header caching code is right via Netlify’s playground.

    But either of these files don’t seem to have been uploaded to the site root as I can’t access them via their URL or if they have been uploaded and I can’t access them via the browser, they still don’t seem to be working. Because no custom caching header seems to have been added to the site. I can’t access the site via ftp to check as netlify does not support ftp.

    So what am I doing wrong? Why are they not working? Netlify says they should be in the site root. Is Publii not uploading either of these two files even if I upload them to the file manager? Thanks in advance.

    I suppose that the files are uploaded properly but Netlify do not allow access them – I have made a simple test – I have create a catalog with index.html and _headers file – created ZIP from it and uploaded to netlify.

    The _headers file shows Page Not Found and in my opinion it is a correct behaviour because such files shouldn’t be publicly available (like .htaccess files on Apache servers).

    Do you appreciate the support you've received today? If so, consider donating to the Publii team by clicking here; we'll be sure to use your donation to make Publii even better!
