I recently installed mod_gzip 220.127.116.11a onto our web servers running Apache 1.3.28. After reading through some of the docs, I have gotten it running and it seems to be working well (the load has shot up on our web servers). My question relates to pre-compressing files. We have a particular HTML file that is retrieved quite a bit, so I'd like to pre-compress it. The problem is that it is index.html, so most people will access it via http://www.foo.com/ rather than http://www.foo.com/index.html. From what I have seen in the logs, this fakes out mod_gzip so it compresses the file on the fly. :-( I tried making a file called '.gz' but it did not appear to work (the log indicated that the file was still being compressed on the fly). Has anyone solved this puzzle?
