Hi,
Thanks for this great mod!

I have checked the "Set Boost header" but there is no instruction generated for this to work in the .htaccess Generation. This is what was generated:

  ### BOOST START ###
  # Allow for alt paths to be set via htaccess rules; allows for cached variants (future mobile support)
  RewriteRule .* - [E=boostpath:normal]
  # Caching for anonymous users
  # Skip boost IF not get request OR uri has wrong dir OR cookie is set OR request came from this server OR https request
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !^(GET|HEAD)$ [OR]
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (^/(admin|sites/default/files/cache|misc|modules|sites|system|openid|themes|node/add|comment/reply))|(/(edit|user|user/(login|password|register))$) [OR]
  RewriteCond %{HTTPS} on [OR]
  RewriteCond %{HTTP_COOKIE} DRUPAL_UID [OR]
  RewriteCond %{ENV:REDIRECT_STATUS} 200
  RewriteRule .* - [S=3]
  # GZIP
  RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-encoding} !gzip
  RewriteRule .* - [S=1]
  RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/sites/default/files/cache/%{ENV:boostpath}/%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}_%{QUERY_STRING}\.html -s
  RewriteRule .* sites/default/files/cache/%{ENV:boostpath}/%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}_%{QUERY_STRING}\.html [L,T=text/html,E=no-gzip:1]
  # NORMAL
  RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/sites/default/files/cache/%{ENV:boostpath}/%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}_%{QUERY_STRING}\.html -s
  RewriteRule .* sites/default/files/cache/%{ENV:boostpath}/%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI}_%{QUERY_STRING}\.html [L,T=text/html]
  ### BOOST END ###

Hi,

It's misleading, but you are looking in the wrong place. The boost header is set in the cache .htaccess which is written out under

cache/normal/your.server.com/.htaccess

There's a new patch which points out that there are at least two .htaccess files in play which may de applied soon.

Thanks for the quick response Philip.
Your answer pointed me to installing mod_headers and now all is working well!

cheers,
Joep

Sorry should have mentioned you needed that installed, in fact I'm going to open this patch and assign myself to do a small "informative patch" to highlight if headers is installed and whether it would work.

Philip.

No worries, great follow up.

Attached is a patch that cleans up a little code from the coding guidelines, and tests for Apache modules loaded (mime and headers) and then if not enabled, displays them. This may not work for litespeed or for Apache + FastCGI, but is the beginning of making the module more easy to configure and debug by understanding what is enabled on a system.

Eventually this will probably move to a distinct page as per BGM's suggestion where other drupal modules and configurations will be checked and their abscence or presence would explain the various features of the module.

Can we get this rolled in ? as I go more towards the installed modules / dependencies/ status page ?

Boost Problem

I have Used Boost module.But bust header some time print and some time not print from same tab.i used %{HTTP_HOST} and %{SERVER_NAME} and dev.reseller.totallywicked-eliquid.co.uk. when i have change the host every time i have blast the cache.But till problem faceing now.please help me.

My htaccess file:

# Set "protossl" to "s" if we were accessed via https://. This is used later

# as the control files used by CVS, are protected by the FilesMatch directive
# above.
#
# NOTE: This only works when mod_rewrite is loaded. Without mod_rewrite, it is
# not possible to block access to entire directories from .htaccess, because
# is not allowed here.

# If you do not have mod_rewrite installed, you should remove these

#
# To redirect all users to access the site WITH the 'www.' prefix,
# (http://example.com/... will be redirected to http://www.example.com/...)

# RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} .
# RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
# RewriteRule ^ http%{ENV:protossl}://www.%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]

# If your site is running in a VirtualDocumentRoot at http://example.com/,
