What would you like to do?
Turn Sendfile to "off" for vagrant boxes
# A VirtualBox bug forces vagrant to serve
# corrupt files via Apache or nginx
# The solution to that would be to turn off
# the SendFile option in apache or nginx
#
# If you use apache as your main web server
# add this directive in your httpd.conf (or apache.conf)
# configuration file name may vary in various systems
#
EnableSendfile off
# If you use nginx as your main web server
# add this directive in your nginx.conf

If sendfile is on, it may causes css or js files cached. I had encountered a problem that even thought I disable cache on chrome, css files were still cached. Turn sendfile to "off" solves this problem.

I think there may be a continuing error with this. I'm using Ubuntu 14.04, Vagrant 1.9.7 and VirtualBox 5.1.2.6, and no amount of setting sendfile off in nginx has any effect
