Overview of all downloads of the extension: EPB - Easy Performance Booster Downloads

Easy Performance Booster speeds up the loading time of your Joomla! website

This plugin improves the loading performance significantly by minifying, concatenating and caching static files (JavaScript and CSS) and minifying the main HTML output.

Additionally, the plugin generates an optimized .htaccess file with necessary compression and caching settings to enable the optimization on Apache servers. If the .htaccess file does not exist, the plugin creates it automatically using the latest template provided by the Joomla! project.

JavaScript and CSS files can be excluded fine-granularly from being processed using specific execution parameters. It's also possible to limit the execution of the complete plugin to particular components or languages. Use the Debug Mode to find the required values for specific pages.

Note: You must place the plugin in the last position (Ordering - Order Last). If you are using a cache plugin (e.g. Page Cache Extended), then you must place Easy Performance Booster just right before this plugin. It means that in this constellation the cache plugin must be placed last and Easy Performance Booster just before it!
