Unhappy what type of site is suitable to use mod zip?

i have read lots of good posts about mod_zip in this and other forums and would like to install it to reduce some bandwidth and cost http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif however i am wondering is there any type of site that is suitable or unsuitable to use mod_zip?

most suitable :
mainly text, like forum sites.

how about :
1. site with lots of picture archives?
2. site with midi?
3. site with animation?
4. site with downloads(movies and music)?
5. site highly uses cgi, mysql, ssi, php?

and how much bandwidth can the above type of site save? 10%? 20%?

thanks guys in advance for your help http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

well of course sites with alot of text and html code are best... i have seen graphic intense pages on my site drop from 90kb to 20kb probably due to the html code being compressed on the pages but try it and find out you can also remove the module by commenting out the added lines in php.ini file and restarting your server http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

btw, in the article wrote up at http://i4net.tv/marticle/get.php?act...e&articleid=12 the configuration compresses

htm, html, shtml, shtm, jsp, php, pl, cgi and text http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
