Enabling GZIP compression in WordPress

asked Jun 18, 2013 in Website Builder by reema40 (820 points)
I heard that GZIP compression really makes any WordPress site faster. I want to enable server-side GZIP in my WordPress site, but I don’t know how to. Can someone please let me know how to enable GZIP compression in my WordPress site?

1.From your WordPress admin, navigate to wp-admin/options.php.
2.Scroll down until you find gzipcompression and change its value from 0 to 1. This will set GZip compression as “true” .
