I'm not using a sub domain on my site, but with this said.... The above htaccess will not hurt you. Adds support for older browsers, tells them to cache a few things.

Just make sure you don't have any double content... ie... For example, you only want to use mod_delate 1x and so if you are using that in your current htaccess you'll need to merge it.

If you're unsure .... Post your current htaccess and I'll generate you a completed version with all the above safely added.

So happy this came out as I just purchased MaxCDN! I was wondering does it work with this or instead of this? http://xenforo.com/community/threads/tinhte-image-attachment-optimization.34400/
The modification has 2 parts to it.

1) It does indeed lower your query for images
2) It has a CDN option for attachments

Part 1 works, which makes it still useful :cool:

Part 2, from my experience doesn't seem to work as advertised. :(

So I would still suggest installing that, but don't turn on the CDN option (you can try it, but I found it didn't work for me or as some people said, it only works "sometimes")

This should work..... I've cleaned up some of their code as they had a few things listed twice. You can do it that way, but it calls upon Apache for each mod call and this way it only does it 1x (saving resources and load time)

Thanks man! What's the link to your security thread cause I noticed in yours you did something unique to your admin.php file in htaccess?
A few things you can add....

At the end of htaccess add this

PHP:
<Files "admin.php">
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all
Allow from 7x.x.x.x
Allow from X.x.x.x
</Files>
Replace the X values with your IP address. This will make it so only your allowed IP addresses can log-in into the AdminCP. This really only works if you have a static IP or semi-static IP (something that doesn't change often).

At the very end of your re-write rules you can also add this (must be at the end, always)

PHP:
 #Block mySQL injects
 RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (;|<|>|’|”|\)|%0A|%0D|%22|%27|%3C|%3E|%00).*(/\*|union|select|insert|cast|set|declare|drop|update|md5|benchmark) [NC,OR]
 
 RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \.\./\.\. [OR]
 
 RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (localhost|loopback|127\.0\.0\.1) [NC,OR]
 RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} \.[a-z0-9] [NC,OR]
 RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (<|>|’|%0A|%0D|%27|%3C|%3E|%00) [NC]
 # Note: The final RewriteCond must NOT use the [OR] flag.
This will help prevent script hackers from injecting MySQL script commands.
