You can easily speed up your WordPress, Joomla, Drupal install by enabling Gzip via EasyApache.

EasyApache is an easy way to enable Gzip compression and will bring your PHP script loading times down.

2. You can simply select the “Previously Save Config” which is the latest saved profile.

3. Click Start "Start customizing based on profile"

4. Select the version of Apache and click "Next Step".

5. Select the version of PHP and click "Next Step".

6. The module you are looking for is called Deflate (mod_deflate) and isn't included in the short options list you get to see when you first access the EasyApache! 

7. "Deflate" is found in the exhaustive options list as a built-in module that is waiting to be enabled! Enabling Gzip compression means enabling mod_deflate.

8. Click "Save and Build" (You can also save this configuration Recompile Apache and PHP now? > Ok

9. Please Acknowledge > I understand
