Subject [users@httpd] Trouble with mod_deflate
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2006 18:55:54 GMT
I am having trouble getting mod_deflate to work on a windows installation.
I'm using Apache 2.0.53 on a Windows 2003 server. In order to rule out other
configuration options, I have re-installed Apache with just the default
config file and changed nothing except to add this for mod_deflate. I
examined the access log and also looked at the byte stream with Ethereal and
the data is not compressed. I have tried accessing a file on the server
using both IE and Firefox. Does anyone have any advice for using mod_deflate
on a Windows server?

LoadModule deflate_module modules/

     # Netscape 4.x has some problems...
     BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html

     # Netscape 4.06-4.08 have some more problems
     BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip

     # MSIE masquerades as Netscape, but it is fine
     BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html

     # Don't compress images
     SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI .(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ no-gzip dont-vary
