I found your site http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/000059.html is good stuff for IIS HTTP Compression.
I am experiencing login issue with sharepoint central admin site, since we activated compression on websites(through IIS Manager) enabled on Sharepoint central admin site,
I followed the steps as below for activation, after rebooting server we have login issue with Sharepoint central admin site, I did n’t created any web service extensions yet since i deactivated compression after we have login issue.
i thought http compression was enabled on Sharepoint central admin site, what should be additional steps needs to make it work.
Any help/workaround would be appreciated!!!
To enable global HTTP compression by using IIS Manager
In IIS Manager, double-click the local computer, right-click the Web Sites folder, and then click Properties.
Click theService tab, and in the HTTP compression section, select the Compress application files check box to enable compression for dynamic files.
Select the Compress static files check box to enable compression for static files.
In the Temporary directory box, type the path to a local directory or click Browse to locate a directory. Once a static file is compressed, it is cached in this temporary directory until it expires, or the content changes. The directory must be on the local drive of an NTFS–formatted partition. The directory cannot be compressed or shared, and the access control lists (ACLs) for the directory must include Full Control access to the identity of the application pool or to the IIS_WPG group.
Under Maximum temporary directory size, click a folder size option. If you specify a maximum size under Limited to (in megabytes) (the default setting is 95 MB), then when the limit is reached, IIS automatically cleans up the temporary directory by applying the “least recently used” rule.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
