We're moving from a single lighttpd-hosted Rails box to a Apache/
In lighttpd, mod_compress had a very nice feature:
if there's a static file, it would compress it in a user-specified
compress folder. If the file hasn't changed, it would just serve out
the compress file; if the file has changed, it would recompress it
and serve it out.
Is there such a deployment option in Apache?
Also, I read in the "best practices" Apache/mongrel doc <http://
mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/apache.html> of the use of mod_memcache
and mod_cache. But I don't see it configuration scripts associated
with it. Anyone using these modules care to comment? Is it possible
to use mod_cache in association with mod_deflate to accomplish what
mod_compress does in lighttpd?
