    He's probably talking about mod_gzip for Apache. See http://www.remotecommunications.com/apache/mod_gzip/

    This does not require any changes to html/php code.

    Of course, if he did mean mod_gzip then he's in the wrong forum.

    This is not what I meant. I'm talking about the transparent server-side compression of PHP-generated web pages. Apache gzips the web page and sends it to the browser that unzips it and displays it. I believe the vBulletin 2.0 demo is running it.

    Still don't understand how to implement gzip

    I want to try out gzip-compression on some of my PHP-scripts. How can I do that?

    Currently I'm developing on Windows 2000 with latest Apache and latest PHP. My service provider runs Linux and PHP. Do I have to add code to my PHP-script or does the server handle the "gzipping" transparently? Do I have to do anything special to Apache? To PHP? If Apache need to be "altered" in some way, will the PHP-scripts still work if it isn't?

    I read somewhere that vBulletin 2 supports gzip-compression, so I guess there is need for gzip-code in my scripts as well.

    Please fill me in on what I should do. I would really love if someone took me through it step by step.
