How To: Leverage browser caching

If you are using google pagespeed to measure your site speed you might find it says you must leverage browser caching to improve your site speed.

Fairly simple job and fairly standard. All you need is to add a few lines of code to the .htaccess file which can be found in the root of your website files.

Open it by using filemanager in your cpanel or downloading – editing – and uploading it.

When opened go to the last line and on a new line add the following:

<IfModule mod_expires.c>
ExpiresActive On
ExpiresByType image/jpg "access 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/gif "access 1 year"
ExpiresByType image/png "access 1 year"
ExpiresByType text/css "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/html "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/pdf "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType text/x-javascript "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType application/x-shockwave-flash "access 1 month"
ExpiresByType image/x-icon "access 1 year"
ExpiresDefault "access 1 month"


Windows 10 Cant send email Issue

I recently found a few client phoning me explaining, they cant send emails from outlook even though on the account settings screen the “Test Account Settings” test delivers successful results.

The Message Office gives is something similar to cant connect to server. All of the clients had one thing in common, they recently upgraded to Windows 10. Well luckily there has been oen fix that proved successful every time so far.

On the PC open a Command Prompt window, this can be done by clicking on the search icon and type “CMD”. From the results you are given right click the “Command Prompt” item and click on “Run as Administrator”.

A new window opens ( with a black background ). in this window type “sfc /scannow”.

Leave it to finish and thats it. Close your Outlook and open it again.

Should be working.
