Support » Plugin: LiteSpeed Cache » Combined css and js files are not compressed

  • Resolved dpacks


    I am facing an issue where google tells me a file served can be greatly reduced if it were to be served gzipped. The culprit is a combined css file put together by LSCache.

    Here are my settings:

    I have tried enabling compression through W3TotalCache. While it reduces the overall site download size by about 20%, the main js and css combined files are still being served uncompressed.

    The CSS file is 1.7MB in size and google complains about a missed 81% file size decrease opportunity:

    I’ve called the hosting company, they said gzip is enabled by default for all accounts, so I checked and indeed gzip is enabled for the website as per and similar tools.

    Here is my .htacess portion concerned with compression:

                                      "text/x-component" \
                                      "text/x-cross-domain-policy" \
    # END Gzip Compression

    Is compression not supported by the plugin? Is there anything I can do to improve the google score?
