HT Access file

Far-futures expiry date should be set for cached assets. With no “max age” set in the .htaccess file, assets are stored for too short of a time. We recommend a 1-year expiration. The HT Access file is full of code. We don’t like seeing this much code in this file. It’s not a danger. It is indicative of plugins reading and writing to the server. This can cause delays. We include the contents for your inspection. We don’t make code alterations to this file.

Godspeed-
