    How do you enable mod_deflate.c in the cPanel?

    You would have to recompile Apache with that option selected, using EasyApache of course.

    What Chris has described is correct; for reference, EasyApache may be accessed using either of the following two methods:

    For additional reference and EasyApache3 usage information I recommend the following documentation: Apache & cPanel/WHM

    They both do the same thing, however, through WHM, you get a nicer graphical interface.

    Both of the previous users told you how to enable mod_deflate in your system but you will need to also instruct your web site to use it too.

    After you compile "mod_deflate" into your Apache, you can go to your Cpanel for the site you want accelerated and go into "Optimize Website" and you can enable page compression from there.

    While this helps performance somewhat, it's not quite as efficient or as tightly compressed as a third party program that I have found that makes use of these page compression modules called 'SmartOptimizer' and you may want to go check that out

    You can find that program here:
    smartoptimizer - Project Hosting on Google Code

    (PS: If you are not "dso" based php, change cache folder permissions from 777 to 755 when using SmartOptimizer)

    What Spiral has pointed out is important to note; it is correct that someone would still need to access cPanel to enable or configure the Optimize Website feature after the Server Administrator has ensured that mod_deflate is available in the Apache installation. For additional usage information, here is the full cPanel menu path with linked documentation: cPanel: Main >> Software/Services >> Optimize Website
