    I am trying to install pagespeed on the server for my domain. Apparently, after speaking with the tech people at Telus WebHosting (Apache server), I can install it in the .htaccess file in the “public” folder.

    I have downloaded the .deb file for pagespeed, but I have NO IDEA how to actually get it installed in the .htaccess file. Can someone tell me, step by step, how I go about getting it installed on the server.

    Thank you.

    Error : httpd >= 2.2 is needed by mod-pagespeed-stable-

    Why would I install Apache when my website is running on Nginx???

  3. @Ravi I am a little confused, why people start talking about this old server plugin again. It’s optimizing a little bit. See we optimized all those pagespeed rules set by Google in our self developed cms. We couldn’t optimize to 100/100 without using a lot of node.js solutions, image compression services, hosting of analytics, maps and youtube js files.

    Do people think it requires just mod_pagespeed to solve all issues? they must be dreaming LOL

    • Ravi Saive says:


      This plugin is not at all old and in fact Google suggesting this tool to check and optimize sites according suggestions given by this tool.. This tool is just an example, there are other well known plugins like WP-Cache, WP-Super-Cache, WP-Rocket, etc.. you can use any of them to optimize sites..

    we have it already. But I need to know how it effects the unoptimized pagespeed score.

    this is our tripple 100 result

    • Ravi Saive says:


      What do you mean by unoptimized pagespeed score? could you explain me more? what you exactly looking for? without mod_pagespeed module, site loading will take time as the content (html,css,js.png,jpg etc.) not optimized and will take time to load, but with mod_pagespeed installed, you can call your all content in an optimized form thus increase in speed..
