In trying to figure out problems changing my permalinks I opened up my .htaccess file and found this bit of code at the bottom it and have no idea what it means or if I put it there. Does anyone know? I actually removed it and reuploaded the file and the site seems fine and I was able to change the permalinks.
ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 years"
does not look like any code I've ever seen not sure what it means.
To speed up the process please post the link to the website in question.

Those are expires headers - they set a time period at some point in the future for certain parts of your site to be refreshed. There is also a rule for mod_deflate in there, which is a form of compression used on some servers to help your site load faster.
Both can be helpful, but if you've switched hosts and/or aren't sure why they're there, I wouldn't worry about it. Neither rule is necessary for your site to function.
thankyou both for your replies, I probably should have waited to get an answer before removing it but I did save it and took a chance.
