Thanks to all responders. I ensure that mod_deflate is now enable in my
suse 11.0 server



LoadModule deflate_module /usr/lib64/apache2-prefork/


I have placed the following in httpd.conf

<IfModule mod_deflate.c>
AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml

and restarted apache. No error or complaining. But I have not found any
difference in access.log to see the presence of deflate. I admit I have
not change the LogFormat as awstats is running here and the LogFormat is
modified to support awstats. vhost logging is separated by vlogger here.

So I can see one of two options

1. mod_deflate is running but can't see here in log
2. mod_deflate is not running at all.

How can I go further to check it ?
