I simply did :

sudo aptitude install apache2

And that's how my server is set up. No extra modules, no nothing.

I'm on ubuntu jaunty.

sudo ln -s /etc/apache2/mods-available/deflate.load /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/

and restart apache

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
  • That's it? I don't have to do anything else? Everything should work correctly, as if nothing has changed?

    or you can just do "sudo a2enmod deflate", which does the same thing. Aug 6 '10 at 17:26

Debian/Ubuntu have the a2* set of scripts for managing modules and vhosts. You can use a2enmod:

$ sudo a2enmod deflate
Enabling module deflate.
Run '/etc/init.d/apache2 restart' to activate new configuration!
$ sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
 * Restarting web server apache2
 ... waiting                                                             [ OK ]

check this manual, describes quite clearly and is for debian like systems
