W3 Total Cache
Issue serving CDN CSS/JS files GZIP'd (3 posts)

    After running W3TC successfully for over a year in Self-Hosted CDN mode, I recently switched to Amazon CloudFront CDN.

    Since then both the CSS and JS minified files are being served/returned without GZIP compression.

    I'm using 'Origin - Pull' method and a CNAME. Since W3TC creates a Custom Origin distribution, shouldn't the headers be preserved?

    My site is http://www.seriocomic.com and the CDN is CNAMEd using http://static.seriocomic.com. Is there anything basic i'm missing or setting I should be looking at?

    I've still been unable to find any settings within Amazon CF or W3TC to ensure the CSS/JS files are served compressed - can no one help?

    How are you checking headers? If your server has http compression enabled, cloudfront should also be mirroring that as well.
