Support » Plugin: Autoptimize » expiry not working

  • Resolved Allon Sacks



    I set in wpsupercache expiry to 172800 seconds and in my main htaccess file like on all my sites it is also set to a high number:
    I see in the cache/autoptimize folder the htaccess file it is set to:

    But in google page speed it is telling me that the autoptimized files are set to expire in 3 seconds. Other js files that I skip optimizing do not get this message so I know that setting expiry on the server is working.

    I tried unchecking “Save aggregated script/css as static files?” but all it did is server those files with a php extension and still got the warning.

    Any ideas?

    that means *something* is overwriting AO’s expiry headers with alternate .htacces rules @allonsacksgmailcom, you’ll have to toggle other plugins (hoping they clean up any changes they make to .htaccess files when deactivated) to see which one.

    hope this helps,

    Wow thanks for the quick response! And that pointed me in the right direction and I fixed it.
    Actually I found in the wp-content/cache folder an htaccess file with the following. I wonder where it came from as after deleting and resaving wpsupercache it did not return this bothersome code:

    # BEGIN supercache
    <IfModule mod_mime.c>
    <FilesMatch “\.html\.gz$”>
    ForceType text/html
    FileETag None
    AddEncoding gzip .gz
    AddType text/html .gz
    <IfModule mod_deflate.c>
    SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.gz$ no-gzip
    <IfModule mod_headers.c>
    Header set Vary “Accept-Encoding, Cookie”
    Header set Cache-Control ‘max-age=3, must-revalidate’
    <IfModule mod_expires.c>
    ExpiresActive On
    ExpiresByType text/html A3
    Options -Indexes

    # END supercache

    I *think* this is the (old?) .htaccess for the rewrite-based mode of wp super cache (as opposed to legacy and php-based modes). but great you found it!

    enjoy the rest of your sunday! 🙂
