I am trying to enable output compression through the main .htaccess file in my root directory and am using this code :
php_flag zlib.output_compression on
The webserver is running Apache version 2.2.11 (Unix) and PHP version 5.2.9 however I have tested this to see if compression is working on http://www.gidnetwork.com/tools/gzip-test.php
and it comes back that compression is not enabled. Also, it comes back that my index.php size is 677 bytes when it really isnt its 4kb on the server? Any ideas?
