    Very happy that you have added support for this! :)
    I would like to enable this, but not server-wide. It would be great if I could enable this on all servers, but let customers add this in their .htaccess file if they would like to use it.
    Is that possible? Couldn't find any information about pagespeed in your wiki....yet :)

    If nothing is set at "PageSpeed Settings" is there any defaults used? Or do we need to use and setup these from: ?

    if you use hosting control panel, like cPanel, you should just follow the way to enable pagespeed as you like when Apache mod_pagespeed is used.
    without Apache mod_pagespeed related directive, vhosts configured through Apache configuration file wont have pagespeed enabled.
    Page speed is very slow, it is better to have it "unplugged" by default, only turn it on via vhost include for sites need that.

    Yes, we use cPanel and it's possible to add mod_pagespeed and install it as and EA4 Custom Module.
    So we have to do that first?

    Yes, that's why we only would like to add it in customers .htaccess file for those sites that need it.

    yes, you can install ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed module, it add configuration under /etc/apache2/conf.modules.d/456_pagespeed.conf.
    to do it on virtual host level only, just use virtualhost include file.

    Using a virtualhost include file is not manageable. We would need it to work directly in a .htaccess file.
    We haven't updated to 5.2 yet so can't test. Would this work ? :
    <IfModule pagespeed_module>
        ModPagespeed on
        ModPagespeedEnableFilters rewrite_css,combine_css
        ModPagespeedEnableFilters recompress_images
        ModPagespeedEnableFilters convert_png_to_jpeg,convert_jpeg_to_webp
        ModPagespeedEnableFilters collapse_whitespace,remove_comment

    It should work the same way as if Apache is used.

    Ok, will it work in combination with LiteSpeed Cache ? (will it cache the optimised version in Litespeed's cache so that with LiteMage and WordPress LiteSpeed cache there would be almost no penalty for using it ?).
    If so, do you plan on adding Pagespeed options to the cache plugins to make it easy to configure for end users ?

    Is this available in latest cPanel yet (Litespeed 5.2 and Pagespeed?)

    Hi Crazy Serb,

    I don't think it is available through autoupdate yet but should be soon, just fitting in some QUIC improvements before then. If you'd like to upgrade early, you can always do so with command

    lsws/admin/misc/ -f -v 5.2

    This way module is enabled for all web sites, right? Its not a best idea, so how to disable it by default but let enable pagespeed per web site lets say via .htaccess? Is it even possible? BTW pagespeed breaking javascript minification for some sites.

    LoadModule pagespeed_module /usr/local/lsws/modules/
    ModPagespeedFileCachePath /tmp/lshttpd/pagespeed/cache/
    ModPagespeed On

    in httpd.conf (if you are using apache style configs) will enable pagespeed for all! No metter you set in .htaccess! Beware!

    You can make it so httpd.conf/Server level is `ModPagespeed Off` then in .htaccess have `ModPagespeed On` it will only turn it on for that vhost.
  12. Any tutorial or wiki how install and enable PageSpeed in LSWS 5.2 ?

  15. Hello Lisa

    I have installed the PageSpeed module without problems. Thanks

    But with any PageSpeed settings enabled (and only ModPagespeed on) the site is broken. i have tested in some websites, including a Wordpress website with LSCache and others without LSCache. In all websites happens the same thing, the ModPagespeed breaks the page.

    If you want I can send you a private message to login into the server. Thanks

    I'm not the resident pagespeed expert around here, but if you want to send me your credentials, I can pass them along.
    Alternately, you could open a ticket.
  17. Ok, I will open a ticket, thank you

    I have a forum page which loads in 1.9 s without mod_pagespeed enabled and it loads around 3.8 - 4s with mod_pagespeed enabled.
    Is that normal ?
