Server Setup

Cheating YSlow

by , , revisited on

We have by far the largest RPM repository with dynamic stable NGINX modules and VMODs for Varnish 4.1 and 6.0 LTS. If you want to install NGINX, Varnish, and lots of useful modules for them, this is your one-stop repository to get all performance-related software.
You have to maintain an active subscription in order to be able to use the repository!

Just stumbled upon a blog of an “optimizer” who’s cheating YSlow with config below.

This will increase your YSLOW Score – Happy Tweaking


Header set X-CDN  "WCWS Internet Inc"
Header set X-Powered-By "TDINX"
Header unset Pragma


add_header "X-CDN" "WCWS Internet Inc";
add_header "ETag" "";
add_header "Pragma" "public";

Well, if that makes his clients happy – I assume I am more than right about people chasing scores and not real performance. More insight on my old post that is explaining how GtMetrix and PageSpeed Insights suck

And this “optimizer” guy is charging people $1K to get Magento optimized. WTF! 😀

If you need any assistance from me speeding up your Magento, Drop me a line, I charge flat $1,000 and trust me it takes a lot of time and effort…

We advise you to check out our performance checklists for Magento 1 and Magento 2.
