GZIP Compression is not working

Hello there, we have checked with the host and the server does allow for compression and the features needed are enabled, but the plugin will not operate.

We have had problems with the plugins before on this site, for example hummingbird and smush won't complete their processes.

    Hi there,
    If you have apache and module deflate is already installed and enabled, try adding this snippet in your htaccess file

    <ifModule mod_deflate.c>
    <FilesMatch "\.(css|js|x?html?|php)$">
    SetOutputFilter DEFLATE

    You can also set zlib extensions compression to on in your php.ini
    zlib.output_compression = On

    In case you have nginx as your web server you can follow this guide here to get it setup - add gzip module to nginx.

    If doing so doesn't take care of the issue, grant us support access and we'll take a look at it.
