  • zlib/Netscape woes

    I've enabled zlib in my build of PHP, and enabled it in the control panel for vBulletin. Works great under IE - Netscape 4.75 has no idea what the hell is going on. I thought it was HTTP 1.1 compliant.

    At any rate, I disabled zlib compression in the control panel and it works now under Netscape - with one exception. Avatars and image attachments won't show up in the threads unless I explicitly set "zlib.output_compression = Off" in php.ini. I know why, of course - because vBulletin's avatar.php and attachment.php are sending different mime types (uncompressed).

    Any pointers for this Netscape thing? I did see a hack posted here to make zlib compression an "opt-in" type of thing on a member-by-member basis ...

    Cheers.

    As a followup, I decided to install the mod_gzip module for Apache - seems to work fine. Screw zlib.
