    Hi Sanjeev
    I have been disappointed with the load time of my wordpress site and noticed that WP Super Cache is the plugin that everyone uses.
    My html sites are much faster but perhaps this plugin will make the difference.

    This is some great advice. But one thing is missing. You have no mention of Microsoft IIS. You only mention Apache .htaccess.
    Seeing that wordpress is available and runs on IIS in a windows environment, are there any rules or changes that need to me made for the widget to run correctly on workdpress under IIS .

    I am using this plugin recently and l was searching best settings and configurations l should to lower my server bottlenecks. but as l see from blogs tring to explain best conf, it seems default settings are best conf for the plugin. the time for expired may be changeable. my site is not ver busy just 5000 daily and l make it default as 3600 soo its ok, l think if l own 30000 or more l should do expired seconds 160 or lower.
