Sometimes for file post you are creating your own response headers in
code, you can put what you want in there at that time. In the example
you mention it takes the approach to do a redirect when the post
For server static header addition, you can set any static headers you
want added in responses by providing a linked-list of pvos at vhost
const struct lws_protocol_vhost_options *headers;
/**< VHOST: pointer to optional linked list of per-vhost
* canned headers that are added to server responses */
Any http responses will go out with those headers, this is, eg, how
lwsws / libwebsockets.org is issuing its Content Security Policy headers.
LWS_CALLBACK_ADD_HEADERS is covering the case you want to issue custom
dynamic headers either on content served via a _FILE mount, or in the ws
upgrade response. For the former, it's going to direct the callback to
the .protocol name mentioned in the mount... in the example case, just
set the mount's .protocol to "http" instead of NULL so it can bind to
the protocol handler in the example and issue ADD_HEADERS there.
