Mod expires configuration and or installation


I performed a pagespeed test it appears that I do not have Mod expires or it is not configured. I moved this site from a shared host and had this configured in my .htaccess file. However, I now have just realized that this probably isn’t installed or configured on my Ubuntu Lamp stack.

How would I go about this

Hi @albertramsbottom,

I believe mod_expires comes automatically when you install Apache however you can check it like so

apachectl -M 

If you can’t find it in the presented list, try using the following command to enable it

a2enmod headers
a2enmod expires
systemctl restart apache2

That’s it, you now have mod_expires enabled.
