How to enable mod_deflate on apache

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I've come across some article online to enable mod_deflate to gzip files while sending from the server. For that, I tried to load the mod_deflate.so module by adding a line on my httpd.conf LoadModule deflate_module modules/mod_deflate.so But it seems the mod_deflate.so file is missing from the server. I tried a find / -name "mod_deflate.so" -print but it returns no results. So how do I compile and add mod_deflate to my modules directory? Update: I found out this tutorial at http://streetsmartingit.blogspot.in/2007/11/how-to-compileinstall-moddef... Step 1 says: Hack (HowTos)
