Getting HTTP Compression Apache Module Source
The source for the Apache module to do http compression is available on the Mozilla public CVS system.
The full path to the source is mozilla/apache/gzip/src/modules/do_gzip So if you are already set up to CVS check-out you need the command:
cvs -z3 checkout mozilla/apache/gzip/src/modules/do_gzip
You can then copy the do_gzip directory directly into src/modules in your Apache server source tree.
For an example of how to add the module to your server check-out Configuration.tmpl
cvs -z3 checkout mozilla/apache/gzip/src/Configuration.tmpl
This is the standard Apache 1.3 Configuration.tmpl file with
With the module in place you can turn it on for any sub-directory tree on you server with a simple directive in the access.conf file. Here is an example:
<Directory /pub/apache/share/htdocs/gzipped> CompressContent Yes </Directory>
