I think that I already have that in the config and everything else but the one url is compressing fine.

Hi @smsmail

I might be totally lost in Apache by now, but found some code in one of my old configs

<IfModule deflate_module>
  AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/json application/javascript text/css text/html text/javascript text/plain text/xml
</IfModule>

And make sure that you have the module mod_deflate enabled in your apache2.conf. I don’t have any Apache installations running, but will setup one if this doesn’t work for you.
