gzip compression isn't working

  • gzip compression isn't working
  • Hi I've enabled static & dynamic compression in the web.config:

    <urlCompression doDynamicCompression="true" doStaticCompression="true" dynamicCompressionBeforeCache="true" />


    And in IIS: (see attachment iis-compression.png)


    And yet when I run the Google Developer Tools' audit functionality it tells me several JavaScript and CSS files aren't getting compressed (including ScriptResource.axd JS files which are included by Sitefinity and a few others) and it recommends I enable gzip compression. 


    See attachment (google-dev-audit.png) for screenshot of the audit


    The server has been configured this way for a very long time and its been restarted several times since it was initially configured - so there should be no need for me to do a server restart


    Can anyone tell me why it isn't working? Thank you


  • Bump
  • I'm facing the same situation... Any update on this one?  
  • Well,  I could be wrong but I think I found the trick... 

    Go to Advanced Settings-> Pages-> Compress frontend script resources -> Forced
