I am trying to speed up my magento site, as part of this i am trying to enable Gzip compression.

I am running on a dediCloud server (unlimited web host), i have shell access and have tried editing conf files found here: www/var/MYDOM/conf/

As per this article:

Yet for some reason everytime i check the page via firebug / webspeed it says that gzip is not enabled.

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

In order to access the site you need to add this line to your HOST file: www.astridandmiyu.com
