    Hi guys,
    I would like to use mod_trim. You can find the mod here:

    My OS: OpenSuse 11.2

    I installed Apache and so on with yast - so i didnt compile it on my own.
    Anyway, i was first of all installtin apache-devel, so that i can use apxs2 to compile my mod_trim package.

    after that I did as it was said on the original website.

    I put my into


    After that I did
    a2enmod trim,
    a check in
    proofed, that it was written inside.

    I starteted editing my vhost.
    I also want to use mod_deflate. So I was doing as followed:

    <Location />
    130                 #SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$ no-gzip dont-vary
    131                 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.(?:exe|t?gz|zip|bz2|sit|rar)$ no-gzip dont-vary
    132                 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.pdf$ no-gzip dont-vary

    134                 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.mov$ no-gzip dont-vary
    135                 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.mp3$ no-gzip dont-vary
    136                 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.mp4$ no-gzip dont-vary
    137                 SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.rm$ no-gzip dont-vary

    163         CustomLog /var/log/apache2/deflate_log deflate
    I restarted my apache and I tried my website.
    But nothing special happend. Actually nothing happend, the whitespaces were still inside my source code.

    I tried to load my mod_trim on my own in my vhosts as followed:

    LoadModule trim_modul /usr/lib64/apache2-prefork/

    I restarted an apache said, it will ignore that line, because trim is already loaded. So I was shure, that I was successfully implementing my self compiled mod_trim.

    I am running an VBulltein Board and I would like to compress my Output, before the user gets it.

    1. I want to compress the data, with deflate
    2. I want to remove the whitespaces

    Nevertheless its not working at all.
    Here an example of my url:

    and it will show the forum homepage.

    When I look into the source code, provided by firefox:

    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1" />
    Which means, that the mime-typ ist html. (I know, utf-8, but the board is not published yet, so its on my todo ;))

    I said in my vhost, it should Filter the text/html mime, but nothing happens...
    Its kind of miracle for me at the moment, I tried quite a lot, and I cannot find anything on the internet, just the providing website of the mod and even in this board there is no result for a search "mod_trim".

    However, could somebody help me, or suggest me another mod, tool for removing the whitespace automatically with apache? Does somebody have similar experience with his vbulletin board and mod_trim ? Or is it just for small html files ?

    Need help please,
    looking forward receiving some answers.
