On LAMP how do one turn OFF an ON gZip compression?

  • Posted December 4, 2014

Hi there,

I see by default gzip is ON. That’s sound! But what if I want turn it off? I need perform some tests and see difference between turned on and off gzip.

I found this htaccess line of code RewriteRule . - [E=no-gzip:1] Bot it seems doesn’t work…

Thank you

You can disable gzip compression by disabling the two modules that handle it:

sudo a2dismod deflate
sudo a2dismod gzip

Make sure you restart Apache after doing that:

sudo service apache2 restart
