    Good day Support,

    Please assist as I am having problems with the above error showing in PageInsights for 28 resources. I have W3TC configured as below but cannot figure out how to make individual files cache longer.

    Hello @trixxmanaty

    I am sorry about the issue you are experiencing and I am happy to help.
    Ah its’always difficult to make Google happy. I’ve tested your website on Gtmetrix and the results are great https://gtmetrix.com/reports/doyuk.com/O20DAAiV and Gtmetrix is not showing those issues.
    Can you please share the screenshot of the Performance>Browser Cache>CSS&JS sub box so we can check the settings there.
    I’ve checked those files and W3 Total Cache should not be setting cache-control: public, max-age=2678400 for those files.
    If the settings are correct in Performance>Browser Cache, this means that those headers are set on another level (Cloudflare or server level)
    Thank you.

    Hi Marko,

    Thank you very much for your quick response. I have been struggling to please Google. Here are the configurations for theBrowser Cache>>CSS&JS.

    Thanks.

    Hello @trixxmanaty

    The settings are correct.
    So as you can see in your .htaccess ExpiresByType application/x-javascript A31536000 and those files were showing cache-control: public, max-age=2678400 when they should have Cache-Control: max-age=31536000
    I’ve tested your website again and GPSI is not throwing those errors anymore. Have you made any changes?

    Thread Starter trixxmanaty

    (@trixxmanaty)

    Hi @vmarko ,

    Yes, I made the changes in Cloudflare. The Browser Cache TTL was on 2678400.

    Thank you for pointing it out earlier.
