“This would be important because??”, you ask.
A win for you (speed), and me (bandwidth).
Hooray for us!
So how did I manage this?
Wisefaq sits on an Apache web server.
So what was the change?
I modified the .htaccess file to include the following:
ExpiresByType image/gif A2592000
ExpiresByType image/png A2592000
ExpiresByType image/jpg A2592000
ExpiresByType image/jpeg A2592000
ExpiresByType image/ico A2592000
ExpiresByType text/css A604800
So now things are faster 🙂
