WP Hummingbird GZIP COMPRESSION issue:

WP Hummingbird GZIP COMPRESSION issue:
- Your server may not have the "deflate" module enabled (mod_deflate for Apache, ngx_http_gzip_module for NGINX)
- Another plugin may be interfering with the configuration
If re-checking and restarting does not resolve, please check with your host or open a support ticket with us.

    Hey there Casing Point IT Services,

    hope everything's doing good for you! :slight_smile:

    Does HummingBird get the right "server type" of your installation? Did you follow the instructions if you click on "Want to do it manually?" Here's screenshot for Apache and Nginx servers.

    If you already made the necessary steps and can confirm that rules are in place (either in .htaccess for Apache or /etc/nginx/nginx.conf for Nginx) please conduct a quick theme/plugin test to be sure that there aren't conflicts, by disabling all remaining plugins and revert to a default theme like TwentySixteen. Here you can find a nice flow chart that may help you out with this https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/using-wpmu-dev/getting-support/ (just scroll down a bit to see the image)

    If the error insist, then could you please contact your hosting provider about this? You can ask them to check the following for you:

    - double check that "mod_deflate" module is up and running, it should support at least "text/html", "text/javascript" and "text/css". It seems to me that only html files are compressing now https://checkgzipcompression.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fbelflowerchapel.com

    - check if there's a Varnish cache running on server (or any other server-side caching solution) and make sure to purge/empty it

    - make sure that PHP is configured to support zlib library and that "zlib output" support is enabled; there's a php.ini setting for this that should be set to "on":
    zlib.output_compression = On

    In case it's set to "off" you will want to change it to "on" and restart Apache

    Warm regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
