gzip compression

Asked by:

I read the article about gzip compression and mod_deflate and have two questions.

1) Do I need to add deflate code to my .htaccess file if I enable this option? (I am using Concrete5 as the content management system.)

2) Are there any downsides to using gzip on text/css or application/js files? I note the default mime types under the website optimization option in cpanel are text/html text/plain text/xml.

Thank you.

Hello dgconcrete,

You do not need to have add any defalte code to the .htaccess file to enable and use this option.

As long as you use the gzip on non-binary files you should have no issues.
