My hosting provider doesn't support mod_deflate directives in .htaccess to provide compressed HTTP responses.

I am using Drupal 7 with Boost and wish to compress HTML, CSS and JS responses.

Is there another alternative to doing this with .htaccess?

Hopefully @mikeytown2 will see this as I am pretty sure he still maintains Boost. – MPD Jan 14 '13 at 21:40

Core should support .gz for CSS & JS. This requires .htaccess rules though. For core they should already be included.

Looks like I never got around to gzip for Boost for 7.x. You can follow the issue here http://drupal.org/node/1416214

My statement from #54 still applies: "I think the patch from #53 should get in." – znerol Nov 24 '13 at 13:31
