Support » Networking WordPress » Adding expires headers in wordpress multisite

    hello,
    i’ve been setting belgranostudio.com .htaccess file, with all the expire and gzip compresion settings that I could find on the web, and my tests have really improved. I’ve implemented a CDN also, Cloudflare.
    But this settings don’t seem to affect the subdomains performance that much; everyhing is going faster, anyway.
    I don’t want to use a plugin like W3; if there’s some other solution, I’ll be glad to hear it.

    Thanks everybody !
    L.

    .htaccess rules apply to all subdomains on the network, same as the main site.

    YSlow gives me very different metrics, between the main site and the subdomain…
    thanks !

    And yet it marks in the subdomain some issues that it doesn’t on the main site…

    *eyes ySlow*

    I get the same results on my domain, mapped domain, and subdomain.

    Can you share your sites?

    They’re
    belgranostudio.com
    and
    online.belgranostudio.com
    But I’ve got them behind a ‘comming soon’ plugin, until they’re ready.
    Whenever you tell me I can disable the plugin to let you do the tests.

    Right now, and for a couple of hours, i’m gonna have the sites online.

    Here are the results of gmetrix,

    Are the sites running the same theme and plugins? You’d have to look at WHAT it’s barking at, since I know I regularly get yelled at because Google’s not got the right expires on their own JS.

    Yes, same theme. Same plugins.
    I’ll check what you’re saying.
    Thanks !

    Assuming you put the expires in your .htaccess… what’d you put? 🙂

    I used this:

    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
        ExpiresActive On
        ExpiresByType image/jpg "access 1 year"
        ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access 1 year"
        ExpiresByType image/gif "access 1 year"
        ExpiresByType image/png "access 1 year"
        ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access 1 year"
    
        ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType text/html "access 1 hour"
    
        ExpiresByType application/pdf "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType application/x-javascript "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType application/javascript "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType text/javascript "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType text/x-js "access 1 month"
    
        ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access 1 month"
    
        ExpiresByType video/quicktime "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType audio/mpeg "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType video/mp4 "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType video/mpeg "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType audio/ogg  "access 1 month"
        ExpiresByType video/ogg  "access 1 month"
    
        ExpiresDefault "access 2 days"
    </IfModule>

    I used this. Dont remember where I got it from.

    ## EXPIRES CACHING ##
    
    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
    ExpiresActive On
    ExpiresByType image/jpg "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType image/gif "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType image/png "access 1 year"
    ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType application/pdf "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access 1 month"
    ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access 1 year"
    ExpiresDefault "access 7 days"
    </IfModule>
    
    ## EXPIRES CACHING ##

    It looks almost identical.
    Anyway, I’m relying on Cloudflare to make my sites faster; I don’t think I’m going to spend mucho more time on this issue.
    Things are going fast enough for me. Still surprised !!.
    Cheers !!.

    I went with mod_pagespeed to make things zippier 😉 I don’t like CDNs.
