First I want to enable GZIP...I'm coming to the conclusion that GZIP is not available out-with the CCGI web-space. If this is so, is there a really good reason for that? To clarify, we're not talking masses of data, but one would think GZIP enabled as standard was the way to go. Had a sneaky suspicion that it doesn't hurt SEO either.
The other .htaccess rules are simple 301 redirects and rewrites for doing the following:
domain.co.uk becomes http://www.domain.co.uk
www.domain.co.uk - http://www.domain.co.uk
http://www.domain.co.uk/index or index.html becomes http://www.domain.co.uk
A second 'contact' page changes from /contact.html to /contact
It's really that simple, but I've tried a few different methods and none of the above have worked...have seen 500 errors and at one point when typing www.domain.co.uk I got a massive URL which was the real path via the server (should I have seen this?).
It may be that my re-write skills are out of practice, or given that all the options don't work, that Plusnet have some weird mod-rewrite block going on.
What's the deal?
Edit: Oh and the following doesn't work either:
Options - Indexes
Options All - Indexes
Had to use:
Edit again: And the keep-alive in HTTP headers isn't setup.
All Connection Data ~ Some plusnet links
I've forgotten more about broadband than I care to remember.
