Thanks Randy, I'll give it a whirl tonight.

Am I to assume that this will compress any output from perl as it works from MIME headers and not the fact the file extention is .pl or .cgi ?

Edit-> Support got back to me, the confusion was slightly my fault, I'd said Plesk, instead of cPanel in my email to them and it threw them as to the hosting plan I was on. d'oh!

anyways they have recommended the same method as you Randy, so looks like i'll be good to go smile.gif

I wouldn't blindly believe that Google is using page speed as a ranking factor.

I'm sure they have an ulterior motive for spreading this particular round of FUD. Just not sure what it is yet.

It's just the usual half-understood "fact" from the "highly reliable source" of WPN + MC

Even if it is FUD on G's part and it has nothing to do with rankings, I hope we can all agree that having pages load quickly is a good thing. Certainly, in extreme cases, a slow loading page is likely to send users to the back button.

I guess the question is how much improvement is worth how much effort: is shaving half a second off a page's loading time worth an hour of work?

I added the line but all I now get is
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, myemail and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
