This plugin allows your WordPress blog to output pages compressed in gzip format if a browser supports compression.
You can now find the plugin listed in WordPress.org.

Good plugin. Only problem i found is it clashes with a database backup plugin i was using, wherein it stopped me getting into the dashboard. A minor problem.
I’m getting this error:
Warning: ob_start() [ref.outcontrol]: output handler ‘ob_gzhandler’ cannot be used twice in ….
and i am not using wp cashe or any other related plugin.
How do i fix this?
you can also email me.
For me it is the google analytics plugin (3.2.5 – http://yoast.com/wordpress/analytics/#utm_source=wordpress&utm_medium=plugin&utm_campaign=google-analytics-for-wordpress)
With these 2 enabled it seems that the WP-Admin/index.php all of a sudden isn’t accessible anymore.
Hope this helps!
I have WP Super cache enabled in my blog. Is it ok to use http-compression alongwith WP Super cache
Thanks in advance for reply
Not working for my site :/

I love this plug in we have been playing with the .htaccess codes with marginal success. Although the site did have one issue where the site dropped connection to the WP database for about 30seconds but then auto-magically just came back.
I think and hope this was a one time issue, it was too quick for me to screen shot, sorry.
By the way integrati.com.au now experiences 74% saving on bandwidth after implementing your plug in and a content ration of 33.1% which = awesome!
Will be recommending this for client sites as well.
Kind regards, Integrati Marketing.

quick question for you, I am using Yahoo YSlow embedded in Firebug 1.5.4 and also Google Page Speed in Firebug and both are reporting that their is no Gzip Compression on my site integrati.com.au
Now when I check via the site http://ismyblogworking.com/integrati.com.au with my site it all looks good.
Now I am positive that this is working as the site is definitely faster I was just wondering if you were aware of this potential issue or false negative with these Firebug tools.
Appreciate your insight, thank you. 🙂
Got it, thank you Steven!
Thank you for your reply!
Como diria meu amigo du ,pqp o plugin é very cool my site work 4x much fast!
I am using the plugin, but there seems to be an incomatibility with the Free CDN plugin: I can use either Free CDN or WordPress Compression, but when I use both I get the following error message in Firefox:
“Content Encoding Error
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because it uses an invalid or unsupported form of compression.”
Any idea what could be causing this and what I can do about it?
I have cross-posted a similar message on the Free CDN site.
Hi. I used this plugin with success for a few months but as my site grew to 2500+ pages, it now causes the site to white screen if activated. Took me forever to single it out as the culprit. I’ll try super cache and see if that works. Cheers!
I just found out that this plugin made plugin installer in WordPress 3.0 impossible to use. Every time I tried installing a plugin, it would stop at “Downloading install package from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/xxxx.zip and never proceed to the next steps. I have unactivated and activated your plugin several times to make sure… It is a pity cause I really would like to use both your plugin and the installation feature 🙂
Noticed that when using this with version 3 that installing plugins (and updates) don’t re-enable after updates. You also don’t get to see the status updates. Disabling this plugin returns WordPress to its normal behavior… Probably more to do with compression and streaming – but it wasn’t an issue with the previous version of WordPress.
I tested my site and got this:
Your blog application doesn’t support gzip compression.
Original Size: 40.25 KB
Gzipped Size: 6.63 KB
Data Savings: 83.53%
After installing the plugin with WordPress 3.0.1, my blog (http://www.cnx-software.com) still does not support gzip compression.
This plugin works really great but once installed and when I try to upload a photo I have this message : Warning: ob_start() [ref.outcontrol]: output handler ‘ob_gzhandler’ cannot be used after ‘URL-Rewriter’ in /homez.38/anotherlq/generationiphone/wp-content/plugins/wp-http-compression/wp-http-compression.php on line 30
Do you know how to fix it please?
I installed it and only my home page would pull up, the rest of my site would just load a completely blank white page. I tried on multiple computers and different browsers, soon as I disabled it, they would all load back up immediately. Any ideas?
Steven. Just to wanted to say a word of thanks. I’ve been using this plugin for a very long time but unfortunately it has taken me this long to express my gratitude. This is by far my favourite plugin and has meant the difference between a slow load and an instantaneous load of my site. This is a fantastic plugin and I really hope it continues to work for all future wordpress versions as I just couldn’t live without it. YSlow and PageSpeed have both shown significant increases in speed after I started using it. Many thanks and all the best.
I use this plugin in my two blogs. So far so good, even performance increases sharply. Thank you for sharing.
When i tried to use it with W3 Total Cache it show me an error,what to do???
This worked really well for me. Thanks for making it!
thank for sharing it
It has been good for a while. However recently it slowed down my web site significantly. After deactivating this plugin, CPU load averages decreased from 3.00 to 0.17.
Very nice plugin, used in all my wordpress blogs. But having problem when updating things for example: when an update is needed for another plugin, it just stopped in the “downloading plugin” page.
I’d love to be able to use your plugin, because once I activate it my speed scores according to gtmetrix.com rise to A. However… I’m afraid I can’t use it because all my youtube videos disappear (no matter which browser I’m using).
That’ really bad, because nothing else has given me your speed results… If you could help me out getting the vids back, I’d be your most devoted fan.
I just realized what’s causing the problem, but I don’t know how to solve it because I don’t know how to code: since the page is on https, my browsers see the videos as insecure when your plugin is activated, and therefore they block the videos.
Maybe that helps you figuring out how to help me out. Thanks again!
very nice plugin recommended 🙂
Same issue here for a while, wordpress/plugin updates/installs “stop”. They actually DO install/update, but the page won’t show that, it stays on the updating etc forever.
After installing the WP HTTP Compression, I got the sliders disappeared due to plugin confict. My installed plugins include: W3 Total Cache for faster loading speed, Contact Form 7, Accurate Form Data to check form email validation, Tiny MCE Editor for advanced text editing. Thanks!
Hello Steven de salas, the given plugin was very useful for me, and the steps to install the plugin was useful while installalation, keep on providing valuable source. Thanks for sharing!!!
