Hey guys,

Just a quick question. When using LoadFromFile, how specific do I have to be with the directory location?

Is the webroot location enough for pagespeed to figure out where static resources are? Or should I specify the exact directory where the files are stored?

For example, using WordPress directory structure to load images, which option would work?

Option 1 directory location (webroot): "/home/user/public_html/"
Option 2 uploads directory: "/home/user/public_html/wp-content/uploads/"

Would appreciate your feedback. Thanks a lot!

With Option 1, all static resources from the WP installacion can be loaded from file, not only images but css and js files
With Option 2 only files in wp-content/uploads/ (and recursive subfolders) can be loaded.

So, if you configure pagespeed to only optimize images, option 2 is ok, but if you configure it to optimize css and js files, better use option 1.
