CSS Question

Pagespeed caching css, annoying to develop

I'm working on a site which I havent coded from scratch and in firebug the css files are being displayed as: style.css.pagespeed.ce.5d2Z68nynm.css with the pagespeed extension. Can anyone tell me what's doing this as I can't find it. I'm guessing mod-pagespeed possibly running on server? I want to turn it off for now because it's caching my css and stopping updates which is really annoying to develop with.

Thanks in advance.

Answer

According to http://code.google.com/speed/page-speed/docs/using_mod.html#htaccess you can turn off the module with the line ModPagespeed off in a .htaccess file.

The best solution would be to have a non-live development environment that didn't have mod_pagespeed on at all, or where it could be added only for some final testing.
