I am using a web hosting service that does not have mod_deflate or mod_headers loaded. I have talked to them about it and they will not activate them for me. I can make a .htaccess file but anything in an <ifmodule> that calls out these modules will not be run.
So, should I bother using WP Super Cache? I notice that one of the main things it does is modify/create and .htaccess file which is mostly meaningless to my server given its limitations (not the fault of the plugin of course). Anyway, should I activate the plugin or, without Apache modules loaded is it not constructive.
Note: I also have a slight problem where it, when active, does not allow anything other then the main page to load with IE7. I am not necessary asking for troubleshooting support on that yet, I first want to know that the plugin is going to work with my lame hosting service.
