Mod_deflate not working


#1

I have a Rails application served via dispatch.fcgi and I tried to turn compression on with the standard line

AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html text/plain text/xml text/css application/x-javascript

in .htaccess. Static content goes compressed just fine, but dynamic content is not. According to the headers Content-Length is missing in dynamic calls,

wget -S --header=“Accept-Encoding: gzip” http://www.hashref.com/

says Length: unspecified. I wonder whether the lack of a Content-Length header is the culprit. Any idea?


#2

I get the Content-Length header now after a Rails update, but dynamic content is still not being compressed by Apache. Why?


#3

Maybe it has something to do how modules are loaded, or configured.

Probably it’s better to ask tech support about that.
