Documentation about mod_gzip

The most detailled documentation about mod_gzip known to me is the one you are currently reading. It is also part of the mod_gzip download package and thus might be considered as the 'official' documentation.

Supplementary programs for mod_gzip

  • enProject page for mgzta, my own traffic evaluation program for mod_gzip
  • enHome page for mgstat, another traffic evaluation program for mod_gzip
  • enHTTP trace - my own online script for viewing header contents being sent and received during a HTTP request
  • enmod_gzip Test - some PHP script computing and displaying the volume savings of a gzip compressed HTTP ressource

Other HTTP compression solutions

  • enmod_deflate - a standard module for compression of served HTTP content (for Apache 2.0 only)
  • engzip_cnc - my own compressing solution (implemented as Perl CGI script, embedded as Apache handler)
