I have a large-ish number of CSS and JS files on my site. I found an interesting method of dealing with this problem (combine and compress files on the fly) at this page:
I've followed the instructions on the page, but for some reason, the /cache directory remains empty, so the script isn't working as it should. I figure this is something to do with a misconfigured htaccess file or the wrong permissions on the cache directory. But I've tried a pile of different things but none so far has worked - the cache remains empty.
Can anyone assist please? What permissions should I have on /cache? What should my htaccess file look like? (I already had rewrite and caching rules in the htaccess, so I wonder are these conflicting with the new rules that I had to add?)
