.. contents:: Table of Contents
Description
===========
Output compression reduces the network load and can improve the overall
throughput of the webserver.
Only static content is supported up to now.
The server negotiates automaticly which compression method is used.
Supported are gzip, deflate, bzip.
Options
=======
compress.cache-dir
name of the directory where compressed content will be cached
e.g.: ::
compress.cache-dir = "/var/www/cache/"
# even better with virt-hosting
$HTTP["host"] == "docs.example.org" {
compress.cache-dir = "/var/www/cache/docs.example.org/"
}
Default: not set, compress the file for every request
compress.filetype
mimetypes where might get compressed
e.g.: ::
compress.filetype = ("text/plain", "text/html")
Default: not set
Compressing Dynamic Content
===========================
To compress dynamic content with PHP please enable ::
zlib.output_compression = 1
in the php.ini as PHP provides compression support by itself.
