Does clients complain that their website appear’s to be loading slow?

Posted: February 3, 2013 in Apache

Speed it up using gzip compress and mod_deflate. Add the following code in the .htaccess file under website folder, save it . Site should be loading pages significantly faster now!

### Enable gzip compression for PHP files
php_value output_handler ob_gzhandler

### compress text, html, javascript, css, xml:
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/plain
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/css
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/xhtml+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/rss+xml
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/javascript
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/x-javascript

### End of compression code

‎* Note: This article only applies to Linux hosting. On IIS, compression is normally enabled on server level. *
