What does it do?

Add an Expires header

Adding an Expires header to your components with a date in the future makes them cacheable, reducing the load time of your pages. Certainly this should be done with images, but that's fairly typical. Go a step further and add it to scripts and stylesheets, too. This won't affect performance the first time users hit your page, but on subsequent page views it could reduce response times by 50% or more.

Gzip componentes

Gzipping all the js and css files types to reduce page weight. The greatest advantage is compressed to reduce the amount of data transmission network, thereby improving the client browser access speed. Of course, but also increase the burden on the server a little bit. Gzip is a more common form of HTTP compression algorithm.

Configure ETags

1. Client requests a page (A).
2. The server Back to A, and A to add a ETag.
3. Client display the page, and pages together with the ETag cache.
4. Customers once again request pages A, and the last request to the server to return to the ETag transmitted to the server.
5. Server checks the ETag, and to determine the page since the last client request has not been modified, to return to direct response to a 304 (Not Modified) and a response of the air.
So. ETag is a Tag to your components to see if they has been modified. If not here will be no request happened. Configure it is a good way.

Easy Install

1. Upload all the content to your forum directory.
2. There is no step two. It's done.


1. Remove all.
2. Done.


If the mod does not work,open and edit httpd.conf like this:
#LoadModule rewrite_module modules/
remove # as:
LoadModule rewrite_module modules/
save, and restart apache, then it's should be OK.
IF there has a .htaccess File in your forum root directory yet, Do not cover it, open the .htaccess in the zip,copy all the code,add below your own .htaccess.

Dear Jack,

I can say that I definitely notice difference. Great job!

I do however have an issue with the add-on. After I uploaded the file redir.php and editted my existing htaccess (got vBSEO installed), I can access the admincp but when I want to expand a menu option like vBulletin Options, it just refreshes the page but the box isn't expanded. When I remove the htaccess code and delete the file, the admincp works perfectly.

Do you know how to fix this problem? I have a big forum (lots of members and mods installed) and this mod just works amazingly well.

I hope you can help me (or someone else).

Thanks in advance.

Take care,

This hack doesn't allow several mods to function. Better beta test on test server first.

Didn't work as intended on my site, and i don't have anything special installed.
(just plain vBulletin, so it's probably the .htaccess file you made i guess)
