Chunky mod_Gzip Goodness

Posted by Mike on September 25, 2003 11:10 PM

mod_gzip is up and running after a few days of testing. It wanted to kill my MovableType installation, and there was a small amount of hair-pulling until I added mod_gzip_dechunk yes to the server's httpd.conf. You've got to set that option for mod_gzip to deal with cgi's (upon which MT runs) gracefully.

Update: Sam noticed something I forgot to mention: the site (and RSS feeds) have been moved up to the top of (instead of under /mph). Automatic redirects should be handling this, but it's always good to keep bookmarks up to date, anyhow.


Something about this change breaks DMR's downloading of your mac-free xml file. The new (unreleased) rewrite of DMR downloads it fine though, so I wouldn't worry about it if I were you. :)

Oh, I'm wrong. You MOVED your rss feeds(?!?!). Why would you do such a thing?

Also, your "Remember info" thing doesn't work in Firebird on Linux. (at least not when you Preview)

Sorry, dude. Housekeeping. I guess there are some loose ends dangling.

Hm. Well... looks like cookies are ok now, anyhow. It should be remembering people again.
