I gave my best effort to make sure I wasn’t missing something obvious.

From the docs, to enable static cacheing:

1) Create a new directory in your document root (where index.php is) named static.
* Done!

2) Make sure speedy_static_enabled is not disabled in your config.php file.
* Done

3) Add the following code to the top of your .htaccess file (or create one if it does not exist).
* Done

4) At minimum, your config.php file should have the following for static caching to work: ‘$config[‘speedy_driver’] = ‘static’;’
* Done

5) Complete the installation in the Speedy control panel page.
* NOT done


I’m on a Plesk server, where Nginx proxies requests to Apache. The .htaccess is definitely used (in a proxy setup, I assume nginx directives are also used.

Here is the top of my config.php

(Is it colliding with the existing ‘$config[‘cache_driver’] = ‘file’;’ line?)

Here is the top of my .htaccess

Here are my Nginx directives, configured in Plesk (where they are supposed to go)

(there ARE a few directives above Speedy’s, which I’ve not yet removed.


I can’t yet enable the Static driver in Speedy:


TL;DR Are there steps to enable static that I’m missing? I made httpdocs/static, added ‘$config[‘speedy_driver’] = ‘static’;’ to my config.php.

Do you have $config[‘speedy_static_enabled’] = ‘yes’; in your config file?

I changed this in the docs, saying “make sure it is not disabled” isn’t very clear 😊

Closing this out b/c it’s been over a month with no response, so I assume the issue is resolved.
