Web Server Module Upgrades

20 Jan 2020

We happy to announce minor improvements to our Apache web server modules.

We have included brotli, header, cache and expire configurations by default.

These improvements will speed up all accounts by default and no longer require custom .htaccess modifications.

We have chosen safe settings for all users. We use file modification times as the base for all optimizations.

If you find a file is stuck in cache, you can upload a new file and the modified time will change and re-fresh the expire time.

The cache is set for access + last-modified time + 7 days.

If you have a file that was modified in the past, then when a user accesses that file the cache will be generated for 7 days. After 7 days it will perform a new check and if the file has stayed the same than the cache will remain.

Our changes are compatible with Cloudflare, CND services and our load balancer and ssl-gateway services.
