mod_asis is an Apache module that enables the send-as-is HTTP handler. The send-as-is HTTP handler directs Apache to add only the minimal headers to a file.


Use this module to send files that contain their own HTTP headers.


Any file that Apache sends with the send-as-is handler must have valid HTTP headers.

Vendor documentation 

The following text is an excerpt from the website:

This module provides the handler send-as-is which causes Apache to send the document without adding most of the usual HTTP headers.
This can be used to send any kind of data from the server, including redirects and other special HTTP responses, without requiring a cgi-script or an nph script.
For historical reasons, this module will also process any file with the mime type httpd/send-as-is.
