The e-commerce.

missing a cache validator


Recommended Posts

When I run my site through pingdom tools it tells me that:


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:


Then it details all the images on the page. Any ideas on how I can resolve this easily for just caching my images and nothing else?

It looks like you should be able to add a

FileETag MTime Size


Header set Last-modified "%D %t"

to the .htaccess file in the images directory. I haven't tried it though.


Best practice seems to be to only use one or the other, not both.

Always back up before making changes.
