etags, godaddy & mod_pagespeed

i’ve now got all the “A’s” i’m going to get (i’m not really worried about the CDN atm).

i’ve also implemented mod_pagespeed (which wasn’t easy with godaddy as a server). now the problem is that etags are removed for my html files, but not for any other files on my site. here is my htacess file for review:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^ [nc]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [R=301,L]
ErrorDocument 404 /assests/404.html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml text/javascript text/css application/x-javascript
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4.0[678] no-gzip
BrowserMatch bMSIEs(7|8) !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html

ModPagespeed on
ModPagespeedRewriteLevel PassThrough
ModPagespeedEnableFilters collapse_whitespace,elide_attributes,extend_cache

<FilesMatch “.(jpeg|jpg|gif|ico|css|js|png)$”>
Header unset Etag
Header set Cache-control “max-age=2592000”

<FilesMatch “.(html|htm)$”>
Header unset Etag
Header set Cache-control “max-age=600”
Header unset Last-Modified

i tried moving the etags out of both of the filesmatch and put it right after the , but that caused a server error.

i’m really at a loss here! any help?

Header unset ETag
FileETag None

Those, added to your htaccess file, will work on godaddy shared. I’ve never set up mod_pagespeed on Godaddy so I don’t know if it conflicts but the above will work, no need of filematch, FileEtag none is applied to images.
