I recently published a new DMS site for my own company http://kingcreativedesign.com. I am having an issue with Google caching my site. When I do a Google search and click on the cached link (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:14sAsQebWvAJ:kingcreativedesign.com/+&cd=6&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us) it looks like the css isn't loading. Do you have any ideas. I'm not sure how to go about trouble shooting this issue. aAny insight will be appreciated.
DMS2 - Version: 126.96.36.199
Hi, we're on pagelines 1.5.2 (I believe the free version) with wordpress 3.8.1,
We have 2 servers, a new server running apache 2.2.15 with centos 6., and an older server with centos 5.5. running apache 2.4.2.
Trying to figure out a caching issue on the newer server, when we make changes to the custom css, it's not being updated on the apache 2.2.15 server. On the apache 2.4.2 server, it works fine.
Is this possibly an issue with pagelines needing to be updated? Or is there an apache config somewhere I can check? I read that it might be an issue with the apache sendfile directive, I've turned that off on the new server.
Just had a chat with tech support and while most of us use caching plugins for Wordpress, I got a little tip (sure the super techies here already know this) but I can admit I didn't. He gave me some commands to add to the .htaccess file of my domains root directory that I build sites off of as well as my own sites and it definitely speeds things up tremendously.
I just added the below code to the top of my .htaccess file (I know this is a file most shouldn't mess with) but I added this code exactly as it appears. Just figured I'd share with anyone who may have issues with site loading speeds. I'm with Hostgator and typically don't have issues (been with them for years) but felt I had to share this for those who haven't tried before:
# Netscape 4.x has some problems...
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
# Netscape 4.06-4.08 have some more problems
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0 no-gzip
# MSIE masquerades as Netscape, but it is fine
# BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
# NOTE: Due to a bug in mod_setenvif up to Apache 2.0.48
# the above regex won't work. You can use the following
# workaround to get the desired effect:
BrowserMatch \bMSI[E] !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
# Don't compress images
SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI .(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ no-gzip dont-vary
# Make sure proxies don't deliver the wrong content
Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary
# Enable expirations
# Default directive
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 month"
# My favicon
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access plus 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
I've been suffering a number of issues (detailed elsewhere) with data disappearing on servers using heavy caching to serve up Wordpress. The folks at WPEngine are helping fix this issue so others with DMS installed can benefit.
We've narrowed down the issue, but need help identifying which file gets hit directly to generate the CSS.
If we can tell them this their team can let it pass through the cache and load.
Can anyone help with this. I'm in a chat with the cache team at WPEngine right now.
