I have a large file called data.csv. According to http://www.whatsmyip.org/http-compression-test/ this file is not getting compressed by your webserver. It seems that an .htaccess file already exists, but I tried to commit one anyway. This doesn't seem to have helped. How should I get the server to compress this file? Is the easiest way just to rename it?

Thanks, Jamie

For reference the file is here:


First, apologies for the delay in this reply.

We don't have transparent server-side compression enabled on Branchable. I'd worry about subtle imcompatabilities and problems if we turned it on for all sites.

However, if we can come up with an apache configuration that turns it on for only your site, I'd be happy to install that.

The simplest course of action does seem to be to compress the file in the source of your site, though.
