    I have the absolute latest versions of cPanel and WHM.

    However, GZIP and GD are just not there, in phpinfo ;).

    I know where to find the .sea file for mod_gzip, and I can download the file, yes, but that's where my knowledge ends.

    Please can someone tell me, as a dummies guide, exactly how to install mod_gzip, and GD 2.0...? Remember that I'm clueless, I know how to SSH into my server, and that's all lol.

    I'm sure there's many others in my situation, so maybe replies to this thread could benefit them too :).

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    From root
    #scripts/easyapache
    choose option 4 or 5
    I would choose 5 considering some things need mcrypt support.

    Well, I actually don't know the answer to the gzip function as its allready enabled on our servers and allways has been. I don't understand why its not on yours. Anything setup differently on yours than it would be for the rest of us? Maybe someone else can give you a hand on this and you should most definatly try searching for your answers as the gd support is answered several times on this forum.

    There's nothing special about my server at all. One thing I know is in layer 1 I believe, there's a mod_gzip file, which is the installer, could anyone give me instructions on how to use this file to install mod_gzip?

    mod_gzip is not part of default setup. To install do the following

    In SSH

    wget http://layer1.cpanel.net/mod_gzip-autoinstall.sea

    sh mod_gzip-autoinstall.sea

    and follow the instructions at the end it will ask you to make some changes to your httpd.conf.

    That's about all.

    Some where on this forum is also a link to goto to check that gzip is working fine. Just do a search for gzip to find it.

    Right, well i'm ready to give up on gzip and just use up more bandwidth and screw compression. I followed instructions posted above to install mod_gzip, seemed it had worked. Here's an extract from httpd.conf too, to show I also did put the code in there:

    Code:
    #
    # Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) Support
    #
    # To be able to use the functionality of a module which was built as a DSO you
    # have to place corresponding `LoadModule' lines at this location so the
    # directives contained in it are actually available _before_ they are used.
    # Please read the file [url]http://httpd.apache.org/docs/dso.html[/url] for more
    # details about the DSO mechanism and run `httpd -l' for the list of already
    # built-in (statically linked and thus always available) modules in your httpd
    # binary.
    #
    # Note: The order in which modules are loaded is important.  Don't change
    # the order below without expert advice.
    #
    # Example:
    # LoadModule foo_module libexec/mod_foo.so
    LoadModule rewrite_module     libexec/mod_rewrite.so
    LoadModule php4_module        libexec/libphp4.so
    LoadModule bwlimited_module   libexec/mod_bwlimited.so
    LoadModule bytes_log_module   libexec/mod_log_bytes.so
    #LoadModule gzip_module        libexec/mod_gzip.so
    
    #  Reconstruction of the complete module list from all available modules
    #  (static and shared ones) to achieve correct module execution order.
    #  [WHENEVER YOU CHANGE THE LOADMODULE SECTION ABOVE UPDATE THIS, TOO]

    # information (ExtendedStatus On) or just basic information (ExtendedStatus
    # Off) when the "server-status" handler is called. The default is Off.
    #
    #ExtendedStatus On
    
    ### Section 2: 'Main' server configuration
    

    Leknor says my pages aren't gzipped. Gzip or mod_gzip shows up no where in phpinfo.

    Should I give up?

    You need to uncomment these two.

    #LoadModule gzip_module libexec/mod_gzip.so

    #AddModule mod_gzip.c
