I tried to install and enable mod_gzip on apache server and downloaded mod_gzip from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mod-gzip/files/

When i try to install and type ./configure, i get ./configure: No such file or directory


The directory that you are currently in does not contain an executable file called configure.

Why are you not using mod_deflate which is a standard module on CentOS? That mod_gzip stuff hasn't had any love for over a decade.

I took a peek at the mod_gzip source, there is a simple Makefile there. It doesn't work out of the box though. I can fix the first problem easily enough but the second stumps me.
