Thread: .htaccess file

    I have an .htaccess file for one of my sites which is now over 50 lines long. This is mainly because over the years I've had to set up many redirects (for moved pages).

    My question is does this affect the performance of the web server? It's just I'm imagining that the server has to check through every single one of the redirects before handling any page request. Is this how it works?

    The reason I ask is that some of the redirects can probably be deleted now as they are over 2 years old. If i'm not putting the server under strain though I probably won't bother deleting them as you never know if someone still has the old address bookmarked, no matter how unlikely.

    Thanks in advance for your answer.
