    does enabling mod_deflate apply to the whole server or can be customized on each cpanel user?

    ** Moved post to new thread as was posted in very old thread **

    All modules enabled via EasyApache are enabled for all websites hosted by that server via Apache.

    This is the new thread. The original post for this new thread was posted to a thread that was several years old.

    You told on another thread that you have explained whether mod_deflate should be enabled by default or not? I am curious on this. Is enable mod_deflate for all accounts good or bad?

    Mod_deflate speeds up the access time for the websites and downloads. The DEFLATE
    filter helps to compress the data before being send to the customer. It is enabled by default
    now. :)

    Thank you for your explanation. But it is not 100% correct. Unless you modify httpd.conf, mod_deflate still not be used. It just sitting there. What I need to know is the server impact if I modify httpd.conf to enable mod_deflate for all hosting account.
