TL:DR (like all your non clear and concise postings)

Wow you just don't stop do you. Keep beating your dead horse.

You are free to use this of course, but you should rename your original .htaccess before you upload this one.

The final item that needs to be taken care of is deleting the .htaccess file in the smartoptimizer file. This has a conflict with rendering your page correctly with .css files.

Wanted to have a go with this but it seems the module is not stable enough. If this is SO good why the developper is not working on a paid version (or still even free) that works perfectly. As i see it there is a 50% success rate. Hoping that this module will get improved in the near future and better support and more stable.

Anyway....you guys give a lot of suggestions and support here to people who has problems or want to make this work.

Cheers,

My most efficient .htaccess solution. I am, so far, not using the 'smartoptimizer' Option.

I use stuff from here as well, the >>Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch<< will therefore possibly only work
if the Option is installed as well. Here is the link:
http://www.opencarto.com/other/rabbit-rabbit.html

Make sure to change

Code: Select all

RewriteBase /shop/
to the name of the 'Sub' where your shop is placed.

It probably still can be 'refined', but, on my server, it works well, so far.
At least, the Pageload-Speed Difference is impressive, compared with others I've tested.
And when it comes to Testsite Pageload Results, I rather care on what I see..., and all Test Sites 'count' differently anyway. Googy is not THE sole Master of 'Standards'....

.htaccess

Code: Select all

# Rabbit Rabbit Security Upgrade
Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

Hi Ernie,

Seems a good solution and got support from JAY (with the cache extension). I have the JAY extension so i will try the htaccess solution.
Thanks for your input :-)

Hi All,

Some remarks and questions:

I am using the smartoptimizer extension and want to know if the rabbit htaccess is better.

My Expire caching is now 1 month and in the rabbit htaccess its 1 week. What is better?

In the compress section i have this: (which i don't see in the rabbit htaccess)
# Or, compress certain file types by extension:
<files *.html>
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
</files>

In Expires caching i have 3 extra lines additional to the rabbit htaccess:
ExpiresByType text/plain "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-javascript "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/javascript "access plus 1 month"

I appreciate your opinions regarding these extra entries to improve htaccess.

Additional Post to my remarks.

I tested a new htaccess but when i open the Security update then i got an internal 500 error

# Rabbit Rabbit Security Upgrade
Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

When i comment the line then all is OK again

# Rabbit Rabbit Security Upgrade
# Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch

What is causing this and why this works with others. Could this be a conflict with the extension SmartOptimizer?

your question has already been answered here:
http://forum.opencart.com/viewtopic.php ... 40#p505241

To your other questions.
... better is, what matches better. There is no such thing as beeing 'Best',
as long as not all Servers on Earth are created equal. It heavy depends on what already
has been 'done' by the Hoster as well, the Hard- and Software used, the Server and Security-Settings,
your Server-Abo, reflecting the Power/Memory/Bandwith-VALUE you get in return, and so on.

Test it, test it, test it. Then you'll find out!

Good Luck

Ernie

it's rather difficult to get clear results, because I already implemented
all kinds of stuff into my test-shop. The speed-effect is minimal, by comparing
some of my a little differently 'written' .htaccess files, when reaching a certain
level of performance:

Image

but I have made some tests with my first OC, not indexed/cached as it
is the case with my existing Test-Version. to compare their performance.
Here is the image, it's to large to be displayed here:

http://www.ipc.li/os/grossbild.jpg

just to visualize the difference.
But, speed still depends (a little) on the .htaccess as well, so, one has to try out
everything to match it to the Server as uch as possible.

It also varies where your site is hosted and from where it is accessed from. If your hoster is in Denmark then the site will perform very good in Europe and less in Asia.

Not really, it's the Setup, what makes the difference.

1. *nix Servers are not created equal, 100 (differently owned) Servers do have 99+ different Settings, not even the *NIX Software may be the same...

2. Server IP's can be pointed to 1 (dedicated) or 1'000+ (shared) Site|s, each one operating under it's own URL, and everyone of those Sites has it's place on the Server, sharing a tiny piece of 'some' GHz CPU-Power , of the same 'some' GB of Ram, it's Harddisk and the internal/external Network-Line.

3. Most socalled 'Hosters' are not even Hosters, they just rent a certain File-Space, then reselling Parts of that Space to third Party Customers. Therefore, the have NO Admin Rights, when it comes to Server sided Presettings, such as Memory-Allocations, Cache-Settings, Server .htaccess-settings and more. This makes them inflexible and most usually don't even know, how to certain 'Things' internally would have to be done.

Conclusion: Get a Hoster, beeing MASTER of it's own Server-Universe. Compare, how a hoster is connected to the World, meaning, how much data it's server-farm can really handle and how 'broadly' it's connected to the OUTSIDE-World. Then one know's, what one can expect. So, check, who is the Owner of your Server, them 'move' to him directly, 'shared' or 'dedicated'.

I know, it does not come for free, but nothing GOOD comes for free. Therefore, to get a PRO Shop, it takes a PRO Installation on a PRO Server. Anything else is Dreaming...

We use this for 1.5 year now with no problem.

Yesterday we install Paladin http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route ... n_id=14855

When we access it from backend we get SmartOptimizer Error: File is out of base directory. :choke:

We contact Paladin support but they answer us that is not Paladin Fault.

So can you help us? :)

You don't need to put anything on your index oder config files, it already has been done, as you installed the software.
But, as you wrote, I assume, if you unzipped your files on your PC, you probably uploaded some of the stuff in the Wrong Format to the server. However, it's your first post here, but without any usable information of what you use, what type of Server as well as what type of FTP-Client, what setting you use for individual file type upload (binary/ascii), and at last, what Verions of OC you use. That's a good way to start. The only good way, to be in front, to possibly be assisted..
no offense!
