Gzip is not working.

Gzip is not working properly:

Deflate is enabled, on my server but my hosting provider does'n't allow for all .htaccess or nginx.conf compression rules to be applied on their shared hosting plans... I would have to upgrade hosting in order to have that feature. Is there any other options for use with this plug in.

    Hello ruben,

    I hope you are well today.

    Unfortunately, for GZip to work properly, there has to be the directives set at either the global level in your server config or at the .htaccess/nginx.conf level. This instructs the module what content should be compressed.

    May I ask what host you are with? Perhaps there's others who have run into this situation and we can try to figure out a viable solution for you.

    Best regards,
