After i was told by my server providers support staff to swtich to FastCGI from Apache php support, i later found out that
mod_deflate stopped working, it was working fine before the switch. My static files were delivered without being gzipped. I did a grep via ssh for
mod_deflate in my
httpd.conf and the module wasn't commented out.
I was advised to make the switch because of permission errors on my WordPress install. All my plugins were creating files/folders that were owned by
apache. I'm not sure if this was the proper course of action, it definitely solved the permission problems, and all files/folders which are created now are owned by my ftp user.
I'd rather stick to what I've got configured on my vps instead of moving to things such as
php-fpm, any suggestions on how to resolve this problem internally?
Thanks in advance.
