Forum OpenACS Development: Re: How to get gzip/brotli transfer compression working?
Yes it may not speed it up much, but its better than none I think and is really an industry standard to to transfer compression of HTML and other easily compressible formats.
ps. the "no zlib support built in" message is something Gustaf added in later source version as he mentioned above. It is probably not in the source you used.
A few sentences above confuse me: Why can't you use the version of Maurizio in your product? You are mentioning a "custom built" the first time: How did you usually build the custom version in your product in the past? Why not redoing your custom build process with recent versions of NaviServer?
1. As Gustaf already mentioned, I always include in my distribution the tip version the Naviserver.
2. I would not have written what I wrote without having first checked that the statement printing "no zlib support built in" is indeed in the codebase.
