Joomla Gzip Not Working


#1

Site here
Joomla v3.9
PHP 7.2.11

  • Gzip enabled in both PHP (I used phpinfo to verify) and within Joomla Gzip settings.

  • I added deflate code within .htaccess and still no change (even after clearing system/browser caching).

  • I tested with Google Pagespeed, GTMetrix and ‘Check GZIP Compression’ and they all say that GZIP is not enabled.

  • I disabled all caching and security plugins, no difference.

  • I’ve tried JCH Optimize PRO (used it on many sites) and there doesn’t seem to be any affect as well.

# For Olders Browsers Which Can’t Handle Compression
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4\.0[678] no-gzip
BrowserMatch \bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
</IfModule>

Would it be outside of the realm to think that the CDN is still caching old data and maybe I should disable it to verify that’s the cause? Or is there something bigger?
