Is there a way to disable SSL/TLS Compression in Apache 2.2.x when using mod_ssl?

If not, what are people doing to mitigate the effects of CRIME/BEAST in older browsers?

You can use SSLCompression off if you're on 2.2.24 or later.

If not, you can set the OPENSSL_NO_DEFAULT_ZLIB environment variable to force compression off in OpenSSL - see this question.
