Make your webpages faster with 80%

I hope you hear of Mod GZIP, no? If not, i'll explain to you what is all about: mod_deflate and mod_gzip are pretty the same thing, they are Apache web server components that compress any HTML, JS,CSS,TXT, or any other text based content before it sends to an user. For example, YourWeb LIFE's frontpage (http://www.yourweb-life.com) has 45KB (at the time this post has been creted), but just by adding 3 code lines to the .htaccess, it's now just 8KB, that's a big save, over 80%.

I'm going to provide you step by step tutorial of how you can simply make you site much more faster, you visitors more happy and cut down you bandwidth.

First, create (or open if it exists) the .htaccess file (in the root of your document) and add this 3 lines of code (anywhere):
Code: Select all
<FilesMatch "\.(js|html|css)$">
SetOutputFilter DEFLATE

then save and upload this file ( it must be named exactl .htaccess and must be placed in the root of your document, where your main index.php/index.html file is)

We are using mod_deflate because there is a better compression technology (about 10-20% better than mod_gzip).
->if your getting a big 500 error on your website after adding this, that means that your Apache don't have this mode installed. Plaese see http://www.forum.yourweb-life.com/php-f73/gzip-pages-with-php-t141.htmlfor GZIP-ing with PHP.

If you want to use mod_gzip, please add this code instead:

Code: Select all
<Ifmodule mod_gzip.c>
mod_gzip_on Yes
mod_gzip_can_negotiate Yes
mod_gzip_static_suffix .gz
AddEncoding gzip .gz
mod_gzip_update_static No
mod_gzip_command_version '/mod_gzip_status'

mod_gzip_minimum_file_size 500
mod_gzip_maximum_file_size 500000
mod_gzip_maximum_inmem_size 60000
mod_gzip_min_http 1000
