      Hi Yatush,

      I am really sorry, in the newer version of WordPress 4.5+ onwards gzip compression field was hidden.

    oh my god… i used to pay this technical guy 200 USD for each wordpress Gzip compression…thank you so much for letting me know this… i feel cheated lol

    by the way, I was just trying on my own site, but in the options.php, gzipcompression field is not available, do i need to activate it from somewhere else?

    Hi, I was not aware that this feature was inbuilt. I was adding those codes in .htaccess but found your way is much more safe. Thanks for posting.
