Shared Hosting WP GZIP - grahamginsberg - 06-10-2010 05:52 AM

Hi
I have a Shared Hosting, WP site and I'd like to get some form of GZIP to work.

Hostgator says that they don't support Mod_gzip or Mod_deflate

What should I do for better compression of text and images?

you should try plugins at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/tags/gzip
its possible to gzip the content from php without the apache modules. For css you should minize the css using http://www.csscompressor.com/

I've tried gzippy and gzip pluggins and then ran the web page perf test and both had no affect at all.

I'll try your suggestion for css though
Thanks
