Apache 2.x Gzip Compression For Websites

Websites are more complex due to use of elaborate CSS style-sheets and JavaScript code. Most website content features text and multimedia such as images for slide-shows. Rich media such as photos, audio and videos are already compressed.

The Apache HTTP Server module called mod_deflate can compress content before it is delivered to the client-side. All modern browsers are capable of output compression. Even old browsers such as Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 7, 8 and 9 support output compression.

Git Source Code Management

Source Code Management Using Git

Web designers and application developers can use Git to track changes or versions. Git is a distributed version control system (dvcs). Every repository (local copy of source code) contains the complete history therefore rendering a central server redundant or network independent.

The focus of this tutorial will be on setting up two repositories. The remote repository can be located on a remote server or local disk drive. The local repository will refer to the version were changes are made on the local machine.
