Mod_deflate is working?

    im trying to make mod_deflate running on server and managing cache. So i want to ask how i can be sure this module is working?

    ls /usr/local/apache/modules
    httpd.exp libphp5.so* mod_bwlimited.so* mod_disable_suexec.so* mod_evasive20.so* mod_ruid2.so* mod_security2.so mod_suphp.so*

    cat /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf | grep eva
    LoadModule evasive20_module modules/mod_evasive20.so
    httpd -M | grep eva
    Syntax OK
    evasive20_module (shared)

    cat /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf | grep defl

    httpd -M | grep defl
    deflate_module (static)
    Syntax OK

    httpd -v
    Server version: Apache/2.2.27 (Unix)
    Server built: Aug 1 2014 04:13:19
    Cpanel::Easy::Apache v3.26.3 rev9999

    php -v

    curl -I -H 'Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate' http://www.mydomain.com
    Cache-Control: private
    Pragma: private
    Content-Encoding: gzip
    Vary: User-Agent

    so i see it appears to be enabled in apache, but i cant find it in httpd.conf, any mod deflate log or anything to veriffy it does the job? I see content is gzip encoded, but it non necesarrily mean that its done by mod_deflate? thx

    Thx, it says:
    Gzip/Deflated enabled ? YES - The url is serving compressed content.
    Response header Content-Encoding: gzip

    So it says gzip, so not deflate

    Which other functions Deflate offers beside gzip?

    That's it. The name of old module was gzip, the new name is deflate. If it shows that gzip is enabled then everything is fine, your deflate mod works fine. There is no other use of mod_deflate than to serve compressed (gzipped) content.
