We host files for a ClickOnce (windows installer) and would like to activate compression. From what I read so far mod_gzip achieves better compression than mod_deflate.

Can I use mod_gzip with webfaction?

Hi,

The mod_gzip Apache module is not installed by default in the shared Apache server. You can still use it if you install a private Apache instance in your user directory. If you need assistance with this, please open a ticket.

Is mod_deflate installed? I tried to set the following in my .htacess http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_deflate.html

When I look at the http response header it says server nginx? and nothing about compression :(

Yes, mod_deflate is installed by default in our shared Apache server.

Could you open a ticket about this, so we can take a look at your .htaccess file and try to find the problem?
