Messing around with gzip.... AHHH
Ok, I’ve been messing around with this trying to get it to work but nothings happening. This is on 2.2.2
Here's what I did. First, I enabled gzip in XOOPS and it crashed my site. Every page was blank. I had to edit the database to turn it off, then the site came back on. After searching XOOPS I found a post on adding a couple lines of code to .htaccess to turn it on. I thought great, it's that simple. To good to be true... sadly it was. After adding it to .htaccess I got a internal 500 error.
After contacting the *censored* at customer support they told me that the zlib module is installed but changing it through .htaccess was disabled due to security reasons. They said that the only way I could use it was by using "ini_set()".
So, after looking it up I found this
Didn't know where I'm supposed to put it so I tried mainfile.php as well as a few others but none of it worked. Site wouldn't even load. I'm out of ideas, if someone knows what there doing more than I any help would be appreciated.
