I am following a High End Websites book and also the advice would be to put this:
<FilesMatch "\.(gif|jpg|js|css)$"> ExpiresDefault "access plus 10 years" </FilesMatch>
Where will i place it anyway? I am using COdeIgniter. And That I get access to my httpd.conf file.
You really should place it inside your
.htaccess file inside your site root.
Furthermore, Place the it within the
<Directory></Directory> block inside your httpd.conf but it is most likely best inside your
.htaccess for me.
