As a Server Administrator, I want Mod_pagespeed integrated to EasyApache, so that ???


I would like to get official cPanel support for Google's mod_pagespeed, straight from EasyApache (for example).

Surely I wouldn't expect an employee from cPanel not to know the benefits of Google Pagespeed. :-/


It tries automatically to optimize websites "on the fly", applying best practice rules to pages before they are served to visitors/bots.


On my website (that I was convinced was well optimized) it reduced the load time from 2.4s to 1.05s, with no perceptible overhead.

I think cPanel just wants all feature requests to be complete so people know what they are voting for.


I believe the first time they tested this mod it was actually slower than without it. Now that it's become stable maybe they should test it again. I reserve my vote until it has been tested and proven better with then without this mod.

I would love to see this added. I have seen seen a huge difference on my servers when this mod is active.


PS: sorry about my bad English.

A new version (1.2) of mod_pagespeed is out, with some newer features:

Hopefully this can be integrated into EasyApache to improve sites using cPanel.

Having tested this we found it *added* significantly to the time pages took to appear at the end-user browser, where time to "optimise" was in excess of 3 times any reduction in transfer amount.

Was this on every request or on the first request? I would figure this would happen on the first request because you caching elements for the user but not on the next visit.

This needs to be bumped to the head of the list since it would be easy to integrate.. Low hanging fruit....

I also suggest this be added... I prefer not to have to build this from source for my server at each version bump...

If you want an optimized site then code your site optimized. mod_pagespeed is goofy.

This feature must absolutely and immediately be made available to cPanel users.


I am a website developer of 15+ years and know how to build super optimized websites but there is one level of optimization that interferes with websites that are under development, being updated or taken over by another developer and that is the compression of HTML and CSS templates locally.


If you check most any well coded/optimized website using this Google tool, http://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/insights/, you will almost always see there is one more thing that can be done to optimize it, that is the compression of the custom HTML, CSS or JavaScript. The problem compressing this last part is, developers need these parts of a websites to be uncompressed in order to work on them. Though once development is done on a site you could keep two copies of the code, one compressed for the server and one not compressed for future development, this is not convenient and can potentially lead to disaster if you loose the original code or the development of the site moves to a new developer bla bla bla. Basically this idea sucks.


Building a well coded site using external CDN's and compressed PNG's base64 encoded into your style sheets is great but those things don't interfere with future developments or risks. We need this server mod to help us take care of the last possible thing that can be done to optimize our sites automatically without interfering with the actual copy of those templates as they sit on our servers.


Please integrate this mod as it is now stable, has a large support community and would commonly reduce bandwidth between 10% - 30% for most sites.

https://github.com/pagespeed/cpanel


This Plugin works like a charm !


For all users with get a "-bash: git: command not found" i rcommed this article:


http://www.servermule.com.au/help/cpanel/install-git-cpanel-server/


So you have to use:

  1. /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/git clone https://github.com/pagespeed/cpanel.git /var/cpanel/easy/apache/custom_opt_mods/Cpanel/

mod_pagespeed is all good and fine but it can sometimes yeild unforseen results - especially with the JS obfuscation and minification. Pagespeed can be easily integrated by advanced user currently but may throw off some novices.

I'm not sure this is for shared hosting. Compressing html and css should be done before loading pages. Modern tools all to do this with non compiled versions of files and compiled production files. Not all customers would want this done to their code so each user would need an option

to turn it on or not.

Hodba, Yes it is. I have installed this yesterday.

I am wondering where to get a plugin so each cpanel account can disable/enable it themselves as desired.


I have seen this in this demo cpanel account:

Please have any plan when it will be done ?
Hi nirjonadda,


Have you tried building EasyApache with our mod_pagespeed custom opt mod? The modules on that web page aren't officially supported by cPanel, but we do make them available to admins who would like to try and incorporate them into their builds.


If you can let us know how mod_pagespeed is working out for you then it informs us if we should provide it by default with EasyApache.


Thanks!
