I am running WAMP Server with Apache 2.0.58 on a Windows 2003 Server

I want to optimize the speed by using mod_gzip on all text and js files

I have used the instructions on:
http://nadeausoftware.com/node/33#Howtoenablefilecompression

I have downloaded ApacheModuleGzip.dll and saved it in:
C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache2.0.58\modules

I have then in the main httpd.conf file added the following:

LoadModule gzip_module modules/ApacheModuleGzip.dll

and

<IfModule mod_gzip.c>
   mod_gzip_on       Yes
   mod_gzip_dechunk  Yes
   mod_gzip_item_include file      \.(html?|txt|css|js|php|pl)$
   mod_gzip_item_include handler   ^cgi-script$
   mod_gzip_item_include mime      ^text/.*
   mod_gzip_item_include mime      ^application/x-javascript.*
   mod_gzip_item_exclude mime      ^image/.*
   mod_gzip_item_exclude rspheader ^Content-Encoding:.*gzip.*
</IfModule>

When I now restart WAMP it will not start
I cheked the error log for apache and it only shows:

The first DEFLATE error is because i tried DEFLATE first but could not get it to work.
I have deleted everything related. Serach DEFLATE several times and there is nothing in the config file. The wamp can run fine with this error, but maybe there is something when I try to add mod_gzip?
