    anyone know how i can disable or enable gzip compression via .htaccess?

    it seems once i set it enabled on the LS, there is no way to turn this off client side?

    Use a rewrite rule in .htaccess to disable it

    RewriteRule . - [E=no-gzip:1]

    Above rule will disable it globally. however, you can customize the rewrite to disable gzip selectively.

    disable zlib output compression

    I am setting up w3 total cache on my sites and it seems to require that the zlib output compression be turned off. I applied this to my .htaccess and while the site did continue working w3 total cache still says that it is on. Any suggestions to a novice in using .htaccess or changing the PHP files?
