    Hello all. I recently ran a gtmetrix on my site and I have a grade of "F" for "Leverage browser caching" The hosting company sent me links to research on how to "understand?" the fix but I do not. I googled the problem and taha! I found some articles that, as a novice, I can understand. Here is the point... "First, make sure Apache had mod_headers and mod_expires enables:
    ... list your current modules...
    apachectl -t -D DUMP_MODULES

    ... enable headers and expires if not in the list above...
    a2enmod headers
    a2enmod expires"

    Here is my problem:
    1. I do not know how to tell which version of easy apache I am running
    2. I do not know how to tell if I have mod_headers and mod_expires enabled.

    I am a novice
    I have a dedicated linux server at bluehost
    I see Easy Apache 3 and Easy apache 4
    I have root access
    I do not know htaccess stuff. I am a graphical interface using newb.

    Thank you for your help.

    Kind regards,

    if you click the easyapache4 link your will get "EasyApache 4 is not available when EasyApache 3 is active."

    I suspect you are running 3 if you have not updated Apache in a while

    hit easyapache3 view DEFAULT profile (the last easyapache run) "show more" it will tell you what is installed

    you can also view via the cli if they are installed

    httpd -M | grep headers
    httpd -M | grep expires

    Start with a better webserver than apache. If you've got the money, give Litespeed a shot. Their installation is pretty simple, and it's a much, much easier system to work with. They also have a browser caching module available.

    Next, move your domains on over to Cloudflare. CDN is your friend, and that will help a bit there as well.

    If your page is WP based, you want to use litespeed for sure. Their caching plugin beats everything I've seen so far with WP.

    You want to stick with EA3 if you aren't the guy to fix problems. EA4 is still in pre-release, and it's not quite ready for prime time from what I've seen.
