Default (SOLVED) Cache Control

Here's the deal, I make modifications to pages on my server and then go to my site and the mods aren't visible. So I refresh the page and there they are.

I'm figuring this is because my browser is caching the pages and recalling them from the cache rather than loading them fresh from the server.

This is no good to me as the content on my pages will be changing frequently so I need browsers to not cache my pages.

I tried the META CACHE-CONTROL tag but it didn't work in any of three browsers (IE, Firefox and Chrome) and a little reading tells me that the best way to deal with this issue is server side.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 installed as per the "Perfect Server - Ubuntu 10.10 [ISPConfig 3]" guide. How do I activate and configure mod_cache and mod_expires? (or should I?)

Advice on how to best handle this please. (with detailed instructions for dummies would be nice)
