HTTP Response Header Lines
This section describes HTTP response header lines, which can be divided into 3 groups: general header lines, response header lines, and entity header lines.
HTTP/1.1 response header lines allow the server to pass additional information about the response which cannot be placed in the status line. Header lines can be divided into three groups:
1. General header lines: Information about the transmission of the entire response message:
Cache-Control Connection Date Pragma Trailer Transfer-Encoding Upgrade Via Warning
2. Response header lines: Information about the response:
Accept-Ranges Age ETag Location Proxy-Authenticate Retry-After Server Vary WWW-Authenticate
3. Entity header lines: Information about the data requested by the client:
Allow Content-Encoding Content-Language Content-Length Content-Location Content-MD5 Content-Range Content-Type Expires Last-Modified
