Support » Plugin: WP-Optimize - Clean, Compress, Cache. » Gzip compression enabled by something other…

  • Resolved Peter


    In the WP-Optimize backend we see:

    Gzip compression has been enabled by something other than WP-Optimize.

    I’ve disabled every plugin I can think of and I still see this message after emptying caches.

    Any ideas how to narrow it down ?

    Hi Peter,

    If nothing in WP has enabled it, it is likely to be enabled at a server level. Gzip compression is usually a good thing, so some hosting providers enable it by default.

    @marcusig Perhaps we should adjust the notice so that it clarifies that this is a good thing? Peter seems to have understood that it was encouraging him to turn it off.



    @davidanderson I was trying to turn off (in whatever was using it) so that I could turn on in WP-Optimize as a test to see what performed better.

    I have no idea where it is enabled, unless it’s in the server side

    WP-Optimize doesn’t have a gzip function per say, but has the ability to enable it on Apache servers, by writing parameters in the .htaccess file. So no matter what enables it, the GZIP compression will perform the same on a given server.

    @davidanderson I’ll add this to our todo list.
