Site news: vowe.net now with gzip compression

by Volker Weber

I have enabled gzip compression now for all pages on vowe.net. If your browser supports that feature, and it most likely does, the http stream is now being compressed before it is transferred. Does it feel any faster now?

If you want the same capability for Domino, you may want to pay this month's sponsor a visit. ;-)

Update: Now the feeds are compressed as well.

nah doesn't load any faster - this results most likely in the fact that your images wont compress that much - if at all.

but nonetheless, enabling gzip compressing on a http stack is generally a good idea ;) same goes with anything else that helps to decrease overall bandwidth waste.

Et tu Brute ;-)
They sponsor OpenNTF too. We used the booster a couple of weeks, but our server is so flaky it didn't work. But we will certainly reinstall if and when the new server arrives.

uh, vowe. no you have not activated compression on vowe.net.

neither the puakma.net test nor any other test shows an enabled compression/gzip/deflate.

toggled it off again?

RSS (http://vowe.net/index.rdf) is still uncompressed. At least that's what NNW says.

Sascha,
I too used http://www.puakma.net/puakma/boostertest.pma/URLReport?OpenPage
and it reported 60 to 70 percent reduction on
this page and the vowe.net frontpage.
Seems to be on now.
Do not see much difference in loading though...

Ole, I am only compressing html and php files right now. May me adding rdf soon.

Volker Weber, 2005-03-01

C'mon, it's just 6 lines of code ;-)

In .htaccess:
AddHandler phpgz .rdf
Action phpgz /phpgz.php

and in /phpgz.php:
<?php
ob_start("ob_gzhandler");
readfile($_SERVER["PATH_TRANSLATED"]);
?>
