    First of all, hi to all, this is my first post as a KH user.
    I was already reading a lots of posts about securing my first vps (Dan, thanks man!).

    So I have few question for vps users..

    1. I noticed that mod_deflate is not activated by default? I'm trying to use gzip compression from htaccess by "AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE text/html"

    2. Is phpinfo() turned off by default? I get
    "Warning: phpinfo() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/******/public_html/phpinfo.php on line 2"
    I run one site on php/mysql, and all is fine, so I think is something with security but can't find it in whm.

    3. Anybody tried installing mod_pagespeed from google, pros/cons?

    Thank you

    Ok, I activated exec and phpinfo in php.ini from /usr/local/lib folder.

    Hello Davor and welcome to KH! :D

    You can enable mod_deflate using Easy Apache in WHM.

    I have not used mod_pagespeed and cPanel does not support it in Easy Apache yet. Here is the thread on it on cPanel's forum though :)

    Hey Dan

    Well I contacted support before doing anything, and they advised me to not enable gzip compression due high cpu use. For now, I have few static sites, one WP and one EE, and they are really fast, so I'm tracking load and everything is really good even without compression..

    so, for now, I will avoid using it, and later if there is a need I will enable it.

    are you using mod_deflate on your packages?
