Regarding Static Caching - Mikosh - 04-08-2011 07:55 AM

I'm partially new to this realm of speed optimization and really love the detail that webpagetest offers. But I'm having trouble solving the issue of static caching. On my first view, in the screenshot below, all of the local items have an expire that I set in my .htaccess. But when repeat view rolls around I get x's on everything. Why would the expires header work for first view, but fail with repeat view? And what would be the reason for getting 3x result on almost everything?

Do you have a link to your actual test result? It's possible that there's something screwy with the headers in the first view that I'm not detecting (they are definitely broken because all of the yellow in the repeat view indicates conditional requests with 304 responses).

Thanks for the tip! I had the expire settings incorrect in the htaccess. Got it working now.
