Mod Gzip

less than 1 minute read


I’ve known about mod_gzip for a while now, but never realized how easy it was to setup under OpenBSD:

cat /usr/local/share/examples/mod_gzip/mod_gzip.conf.sample >> /var/www/conf/httpd.conf
mkdir /var/www/tmp
chmod 777 /var/www/tmp
apachectl stop
apachectl start

After all that was done I found: which you can use to test the download time of your webpages and to see if mod_gzip is actually working.
