Forum OpenACS Development: Re: How to get gzip/brotli transfer compression working?

Posted by Gaven Eogan on
Thanks Maurizio... I will be trying this out today to see if it works... we will still need to do a custom version of this for our system though... can't use your default build in our product.
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.

The version built by Maurizio is based on the source code of "31st of October 2019" (he takes always the tip version of NaviServer).

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?

At the time there were a few bugs we needed that were not in the standard version so we had to fix them in custom version. I think at the time the log rolling was not working. Not sure what else. I wasn't involved in this part of system at that time. There was also other things added. We worked with Maurizio who gave us the build environment. I heard that we didn't need to do a newer build as there were not many changes. But now we do (need to update a lot of things). Yes we will be rebuilding latest version into our own custom (if still needed - have to check this)
Dear Gaven,
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.

Best regards,
