Mod_pagespeed version

apps

#1

Hello,

I am a happy user of the mod_pagespeed beta checkbox. I decided to add a few custom filters to cram a bit more of optimization (via .htaccess, as described here: http://code.google.com/speed/page-speed/docs/config_filters.html ).

I’ve added a few, but others gave me an error 500 (Internal Server Error). I’ve noticed that at least two of the problematic ones (trim_url and combine_javascript) are tagged as new features of version 0.9.16.1 and 0.9.17.3, respectively.

It seems that DreamHost has an earlier version, so I ask: does anyone know if they have plans to upgrade? If not, is there a way to enable the upgrade on my site? How? Should I? :slight_smile:

Thank you!


#2

Yes — we should probably get around to upgrading that. I’ll make a bug to do that right now!


#3

Great, that would be awesome! Some of those newer optimizations will really enhance performance in lots of sites.

Thanks!


#4

It would be nice to have a newer version available, still - I’d like to give the combine_javascript option a try.

Hi I’d like to bump this to check the status - the installed version is 0.9.15.3 as of today, and I can confirm that it’s got a few bugs that prevent its use. My site was self-DoSing itself when I activated due to hitting the filesystem limit of /var/mod_pagespeed/files/ (too many locks).

Now that you’re mentioned mod_pagespeed in the newsletter, that it’s out of beta, what version have you installed on dedicated servers? Is it up to date yet?


#7

Looks like we’re currently using 0.10.22.6-r1798, which is one minor revision off of the current version. There’s only one difference between ours and theirs, which is the ability to turn off a feature. So you should be good to go. I checked and made sure paracast has that version.


#8

Current deployed version should be 0.10.22.6-r1798. (We’re aware that 1.0.22.7 has just come out, but we’ve determined that the changes in that version are not necessary for our deployment — 0.10.22.7 added a single configuration option, and 1.0.22.7 was simply a 1.0 release with no changes.)


#9

Well, it seems to be working, so far, without the workarounds I encountered with the older version. I actually had the Google developers make a fix when I brought a nav bar rendering problem to their attention.

I’m glad you got a near-latest version installed. Thanks.

Now since we’re in new stuff, how about the latest Xcache and the latest PHP 5.3.x?

I just checked the version of Mod PageSpeed running on my Dreamhost VPS and it is X-Mod-Pagespeed: 1.6.29.7-3566 . At https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/module/release_notes#release_1.6.29.7-stable they are at 1.9.32.3 . Are you going to update this for VPS/Shared? Or is there a wiki page or explanation somewhere so I can do this?

Excellent, that would be awesome!
