# Mod Gzip

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

pkg_add ftp://ftp.usa.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/3.6/packages/i386/mod_gzip-1.3.26.1a.tgz
/usr/local/sbin/mod_gzip-enable
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: http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze/ which you can use to test the download time of your webpages and to see if mod_gzip is actually working.
