Hello,

just installed speedy, activated static caching.
The problem is that when a page gets cached it changes URL for example :

http://146.59.237.173/dove-siamo/
becomes:
http://146.59.237.173/static/default_site/static/dove-siamo/

this is my .htaccess:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /

#boldminded speedy addon
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/system [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !ACT|URL [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !=POST [NC]
RewriteCond $1 !\.(css|js|gif|jpe?g|png) [NC]
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php -f
RewriteRule ^ /static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php [L,QSA]


# Removes index.php from ExpressionEngine URLs
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^GET.*index\.php [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/system/.* [NC]
RewriteRule (.*?)index\.php/*(.*) /$1$2 [R=301,NE,L]

# Directs all EE web requests through the site index file
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

Can you share screenshots of your “static” folder, including all sub folders. I want to see if the rest of the directory structure was created correctly.

Also, did you try removing the last 2 htaccess blocks? (everything after # Removes index.php from ExpressionEngine URLs)

with this .htaccess I can only browse home page:
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/system [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !ACT|URL [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !=POST [NC]
RewriteCond $1 !\.(css|js|gif|jpe?g|png) [NC]
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php -f
RewriteRule ^ /static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php [L,QSA] 
</IfModule>

#3

Francesco Pensabene

Nov 25, 2020

so with the .htaccess as above I cannot reach any subfolder url -> i need to put index.php

for example:
http://146.59.237.173/contattaci -> gives 404 erro
http://146.59.237.173/index.php/contattaci -> this works

Also my server requires forcing query strings so I usually edit the standard EE .htaccess like so:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

#4

BoldMinded (Brian)

Can you please share screenshots of your static folder with all the files in it so I can see the directory structure? Honestly there isn’t much I can do if he static folder has the correct files. I know that the example htaccess rules in the docs work, and they’re just examples that aren’t officially supported. So if the static directory contains the correct files than there may be something else causing the issue… any number of things can be causing a problem and possibly unrelated to Speedy.

#5

Francesco Pensabene

Nov 25, 2020

I cannot share the directory image right now but I can confirm that the cache files are generated correctly. For me the problem resides in the htaccess rules.

I added the last lines of the standard EE htaccess and now I can browse the website:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/system [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !ACT|URL [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !=POST [NC]
RewriteCond $1 !\.(css|js|gif|jpe?g|png) [NC]
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php -f
RewriteRule ^ /static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php [L,QSA] 
# Directs all EE web requests through the site index file
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]
</IfModule>

I don’t have anything strange in place it’s just a new centos/plesk webserver with standard configuration.

Also my server requires forcing query strings so I usually edit the standard EE .htaccess like so:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?/$1 [L]

This is kind of what I’m referring to… servers can be wildly different… you may have to experiment with the example htaccess rules to find what works for you. I don’t know if this is correct, b/c I’m not an htaccess expert, but maybe start here:

RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php?/$1 [L,QSA]

This is what I have in my local environment, which works with static files or the static using Redis:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase "/"

Header set Access-Control-Allow-Origin *

# Speedy Static file driver
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/system [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !ACT|URL [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !=POST [NC]
RewriteCond $1 !\.(css|js|gif|jpe?g|png) [NC]
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php -f
RewriteRule ^ /static/default_site/static%{REQUEST_URI}/index\.php [L,QSA]

# Speedy Redis as Static driver
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/admin.php [NC]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} !ACT|URL [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} !=POST [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/~ [NC]
RewriteCond $1 !\.(css|js|gif|jpe?g|png) [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/index_redis_default_site\.php -f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index_redis_default_site\.php?%{REQUEST_URI} [L,QSA]

# Do our rewrites
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php/$1 [L]
#8

Francesco Pensabene

Nov 25, 2020

Ok,

so the last 3 rules are needed by EE to redirect every url through index.php

#9

Francesco Pensabene

Nov 25, 2020

The last question… is there a way to prune only one page cache? Is it only possible to delete ALL cached files?

#10

BoldMinded (Brian)

Nov 25, 2020

If you click on the magnifying glass you should be able to see and delete individual keys, or re-save the entry and based on your cache busting rules should delete the static file too.

Hello Brian,

Now I’m trying to use the fragment caching, I’m working with layouts and I did as stated in the docs i escaped all contents that needs to be replaced in the layout.
But I noticed that in the final template I must escape also the {layout:set name=‘custom_variable’} othervise I ge an error on the template.
is that correct? I couldn’t find anything in the docs

#12

BoldMinded (Brian)

Nov 26, 2020

Can you paste in the full template code you’re using so I can replicate it? You can strip out non relevant html tags or channel:entries tags that aren’t important… basically strip the templates down to the bare minimum to make the issue happen, and paste them here.

Btw it’s a holiday weekend in the states, so my response times may be delayed a bit.

#13

BoldMinded (Brian)

Nov 26, 2020

Are you still using full page static caching?

Can you strip those templates down to _only_ the relevant code to recreate the problem… remove all extra html, channel:entries tags etc. thanks.

#17

BoldMinded (Brian)

Nov 26, 2020

All that extra template code is just noise, I need the simplest template code necessary to recreate the issue before I spend time looking into this.

Francesco, you still haven’t answered the question: Are you still using full page static caching? Fragment caching and static caching are not meant to be used at the same time. They’re 2 completely different types of caching strategies.

#20

Francesco Pensabene

Nov 27, 2020

Hi Brian, sorry, no I’ve disabled it!

#21

BoldMinded (Brian)

Nov 27, 2020

You also don’t have the global=“yes” parameter as noted in the docs: https://docs.boldminded.com/speedy/docs/tags#template-layouts

#22

BoldMinded (Brian)

Nov 27, 2020

I just double checked, and this is what I have that works locally:

layout file:

{exp:speedy:fragment key="global-layout" global="yes"}
    {exp:speedy:escape}
        layout:title={layout:title}
    {/exp:speedy:escape}
    
    [before layout:contents]
    {exp:speedy:escape}{layout:contents}{/exp:speedy:escape}
    [after layout:contents]
{/exp:speedy:fragment}

template file:

{layout="layouts/main"}

{exp:speedy:fragment key="fragment-embed-test"}

 [before embed:cache/fragment-embed]
 {embed="cache/fragment-embed"}
 [after embed:cache/fragment-embed]
 
 {exp:speedy:escape}
  {layout:set name='title'}THIS IS THE TITLE{/layout:set}
 {/exp:speedy:escape}
 
{/exp:speedy:fragment}

This results in the layout:title={layout:title} line rendering correctly.

#23

Francesco Pensabene

Nov 27, 2020

Ok,
to confirm in the template you have to escape the layout:set tags? Is that correct?

#24

BoldMinded (Brian)

Nov 27, 2020

Yep, as noted in the docs.

#25

Francesco Pensabene

Nov 30, 2020

Hi Bryan,

what is this line on your code up?

{embed=“cache/fragment-embed”}

#26

BoldMinded (Brian)

Nov 30, 2020

That embed is just me testing to make sure embeds work with caching and layout variables, which they do.
