Specify a cache validator Help
« on: July 31, 2018, 09:30:24 AM »
I've been working on optimizing my site to make it load quicker.

On the speed test sites, it always tells me that I need to Specify a cache validator. Which I have, but it lists out all of the images in the ajax-images and the alert-images file that our scripts / templates use. I can't figure out why those images / folders are not "specifying a cache validator" when I've worked hard (I thought) to ensure my site have the last-modified and ETags.

Any suggestions? Thanks!!

EDIT: Thought this would help. Here's part of my .htaccess file that deals with this:

Umm.. you left off the l in the Cache-control header.

Should read:

Header set Cache-Control "max-age=60, public, must-revalidate"

In case this helps, here's what I'm talking about




The following resources are missing a cache validator. Resources that do not specify a cache validator cannot be refreshed efficiently. Specify a Last-Modified or ETag header to enable cache validation for the following resources:

I'm interested in how this turns out for you as I'm trying to speed up my own site and have similar warnings as you.

Question: is the .htaccess file supposed to already be there or did you have to create it?  I can't find it at all, not in the root of the Domain (where it's supposed to be), or in the public_html folder.  There are a number of other .xxxx hidden files, but not this one.

Is your .htaccess file hidden and called ".htaccess"

is it placed into the correct folder. the one when your index.php is from this URL

Hi Toxic - yes, it's called .htaccess and not accessible by the browser. It's in the "weather" folder where my index.php page is.

Thanks for sending me your suggested code - unfortunately it didn't work. I'm going to keep digging and figure out what's causing it -I'm sure it's an error on my part.

hmmm interesting this works on many and is the simplest way to ensure , however you may want to look at the structure of your htaccess  are the expires at the very bottom...

example



<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 application/javascript “access 1 month”
ExpiresByType application/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>

i spent months fine tuning the htaccess nothing was immediate lots of trial and and error and lots of reading . now use same file on other setups . good luck you will nail it sooner or later

I'll check in a few if it's at the bottom of the .htaccess or not, but are you saying it SHOULD be? Or at least, that's how you have it?
