Does anybody here run mod_gzip on 2.2.2 and Windows? I've been trying to find installation instructions for Windows, but all I can find are specific *nix ones. Thanks for your help.

Why should you use mod_gzip.

Mod_deflate is included in Apache and is doing a far better Job. See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_deflate.html

Steffen,

Ah! I thought that mod_gzip was faster than deflate. I've currently got deflate running, and it works great. I just thought that mod_gzip might be able to squeeze out a little more compression.

I'm also running php 5.1.4, should I also turn on zlib compression in php.ini?

Thanks for your help, I'm pretty new at this WAMP stuff.

I do not see any need to set zlib compression in php when Apache is already compressing with mod_deflate. It gives only (cpu) overhead.
