Why the Cache-Control code of Browser Caching is not working for image types?

Posted August 12, 2020 719 views

As I was following through the tutorial on the Browser Caching with Nginx’s header Module on Ubuntu 16.04,

it is successfully working for all file types except for the image types.

The Gtmetrix Speed tester is recommending to leverage the browser cache for images and showing expiration not specified for images.

How can I fix the issue to leverage browser caching for images?

Hi there @Nusrat,

If you do a curl -I http://localhost/test.jpg what are the headers that you get back?

Also is Gtmetrix reporting specific image types that are problematic or is it for all images on your site?
