Ubuntu 14.04 Apache 2.4.7 php-FPM 5.5.9
Using latest stable Pagespeed Module for Apache (184.108.40.206-4448).
I'm in the process of optimizing a WordPress website for speed (bandwidth and rendering). Mod Deflate is set up. A plugin (Better Wordpress Minify) compresses and combines all css files into one (thus reducing the number of requests). With Pagespeed switched off, if I check the produced link (using FeedTheBot) it confirms that the content is compressed using gzip. But If Pagespeed is switched on, it shows Gzip is not working. Using PageSpeed Insight (chrome extension) confirms this.
Here is what I've tried:
- Adding to /etc/apache2/mods-available/pagespeed.conf
ModPagespeedFetchWithGzip on SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
- check that mod Deflate is available and enabled (it appears in the list produced by
apache2ctl -t -D DUMP_MODULES). The fact that if pagespeed is switched off, it works for the combined css file is another proof.
Do you have an explanation ?
