Wordpress much more efficient HTACCESS/mod_rewrite

 / Published in: Apache


A member of Wordpress community says: I placed this code on my site and it instantly cut my page load times from 4-8 seconds per page (and typically on the high end of that) down to 1-3 seconds per page and EVERYTHING on my site works as it did before. I have yet to find a problem with anything related to the change. It was a HUGE WordPress Performance improvement... and it didn't require me adding yet another plugin like WP Cache or WP Super Cache and inheriting the various problems that using those entail.

  1. # BEGIN WordPress
  2. RewriteEngine on
  3. #
  4. # Unless you have set a different RewriteBase preceding this
  5. # point, you may delete or comment-out the following
  6. # RewriteBase directive:
  7. RewriteBase /
  8. #
  9. # if this request is for "/" or has already been rewritten to WP
  10. RewriteCond $1 ^(index\.php)?$ [OR]
  11. # or if request is for image, css, or js file
  12. RewriteCond $1 \.(gif|jpg|css|js|ico)$ [NC,OR]
  13. # or if URL resolves to existing file
  14. RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
  15. # or if URL resolves to existing directory
  16. RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
  17. # then skip the rewrite to WP
  18. RewriteRule ^(.*)$ - [S=1]
  19. # else rewrite the request to WP
  20. RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
  21. #
  22. # END wordpress
