Ah, you were correct! I just tested mod_gzip the other day and somehow determined it was working but I wasn’t able to determine that again just now so I must have confused myself along the way somewhere before.
Anyway, I have fixed it and it is working for your domains now (I’m assuming your web id is the same as your login here on the discussion boards). Note that there is a minimum file size required before it will compress so it won’t work on very small files (like the index.html on one of your domains).
Note that the whatismyip.org mod_gzip test does not work for testing our servers. I don’t know why, but I do know that it still gives a negative response when mod_gzip is working.
I’m using this simple script to test:
If you’re still having problems with a specific domain or URL you can send me a private message with the specifics and I’ll take a look.
