I am expiering some problems with the Google's Apache mod_pagespeed module to combine css, js, etc. During the last months I developed a new version of our software based on Zend Framework. I just installed mod_pagespeed and it doesn't seem to work.

I run Ubuntu Server 11.04 and the latest mod_pagespeed module. I am using Zend Framework 1.11.11 and running PHP 5.3.3 with Apache 2.

When I put my Apache LogLevel to 'debug' then I get the following messages:

[Mon Jul 16 10:44:53 2012] [debug] net/instaweb/apache/mod_instaweb.cc(370): [client 217.196.45.116] ModPagespeed OutputFilter called for request /index.php
[Mon Jul 16 10:44:53 2012] [debug] net/instaweb/apache/mod_instaweb.cc(391): [client 217.196.45.116] Request not rewritten because: request->status != 200 (was 404)

When accessing a URL like: http://development.domain.nl/filter/fietsslot-1967/

I get the above errors. This might be caused I rewrite all calls to index.php as advised by Zend Framework:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -s [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

<FilesMatch "\.(jpg|jpeg|png|gif|swf|js|css)$">
Header set Cache-Control "max-age=604800, public"
</FilesMatch>

Header unset ETag

So it looks like mod_pagespeed makes an 'underlying' call to the same page but not with the original URL but the resolved version.

If I go to this URL: http://development.domain.nl/index.php

I get indeed an 404 because Zend Framework doesn't know what to do (which controller/action is accessed).

What should I do? Thanks in advance!

My Mod_Pagespeed configuration:

    # Turn on mod_pagespeed. To completely disable mod_pagespeed, you
    # can set this to "off".

    # Override the mod_pagespeed 'rewrite level'. The default level
    # "CoreFilters" uses a set of rewrite filters that are generally

    # PassThrough, CoreFilters and TestingCoreFilters.
    #
    # ModPagespeedRewriteLevel PassThrough

    # Explicitly disables specific filters. This is useful in

    # Explicitly enables specific filters. This is useful in

    # ModPagespeedDomain
    # authorizes rewriting of JS, CSS, and Image files found in this

    # Wildcards (* and ?) are allowed in the domain specification. Be

Which mod_pagespeed filters do you have enabled? Are you sure they are not working? –  Wolph Jul 16 '12 at 10:41
    
Check my configuration, and yes, css/js is nog combined or minified.. –  Kees Schepers Jul 16 '12 at 10:55
    
Seems that this problem is discusssed here either: code.google.com/p/modpagespeed/issues/detail?id=419#makechanges mapping the url like: index.php?path=$0 would be a solution but I rather like to fix it how it should work by default. –  Kees Schepers Jul 16 '12 at 11:34
