Howto install gzip in xampp (1.6.6a)

Postby Siberiantiger » 13. April 2008 21:32

I need to enable / install gzip in xampp since i use $mosConfig_gzip = '1'; in my joomla installation. If this is set to 1, then the webpage does not load at all.. But when setting it to 0, the page is working as it should

So how can i enable / install this gzip function?

I'm trying to do this in 1.7 for zen-cart on my website http://www.puertoricoautoforo.com
I've enabled this line in httpd.conf

LoadModule deflate_module modules/mod_deflate.so


What gives?

I've enabled this line in httpd.conf
...and you saved the file and restarted Apache as we can only guess at what you have done or are even trying to do.

Also the zen-cart web site may be of more help with the archive file types than here.

As far as I recall there is no gzip binary in XAMPP - gzip is a *nix thing.

I downloaded from the internet several zip files containing various binary archive files like gzip and zip some time ago for my 1.6.8 XAMPP version, I placed the binaries, after extracting, in the apache\bin folder in a folder called simply zip - then I call the particular archiver binary I need by reference to this location - for example C:\xampp\apache\bin\zip\gzip.exe

The zip archives containing various zip type binaries that I downloaded are:
zip232xN.zip
unz552xN.exe
gzip124xN.zip

So an Internet search may find the latest releases of these files - I have no idea now where I downloaded them from, been a long time since I found them.

This old topic may help.

From my understanding GZIP enables the server and client browser to establish a compressed connection of some kind in order to speed up download speeds.

Here's a link to my phpinfo , maybe this can help

I tried enabling everything I could find in the way of gzip compression, yet ZC says it's still "turned off"
