    Hi, I've just switched 6 domains to a VPS with WHM. I have the Cpanel option to "optimize website" and also Tweak settings in WHM "gzip compression level 1-9". Are they different?.. Should I apply both or if I compress from WHM will all the Cpanels under it be optimized?

    I'm assuming compression level 9 is OK to use?

    Hi @LouSpar

    The compression being discussed in tweak settings is specific to backups. You can see this in our documentation when it's discussed here: Tweak Settings - Version 76 Documentation - cPanel Documentation


    The compression being discussed in Optimize website is done through apache using mod_deflate or zlib compression.
