Installing the PageSpeed module

On the test, I install the PageSpeed module in Ubuntu Server 14.04.5 LTS and CentOS

Download page with different versions of the module https://modpagespeed.com/doc/download
https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/module/

And so, download the stable version for Debian / Ubuntu:

sudo wget https://dl-ssl.google.com/dl/linux/direct/mod-pagespeed-stable_current_amd64.deb

Or for CentOS / Fedora:

https://dl-ssl.google.com/dl/linux/direct/mod-pagespeed-stable_current_x86_64.rpm

Install in Ubuntu, the module is automatically activated:

sudo dpkg -i mod-pagespeed-*.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

In CentOS like this:

sudo yum install at
sudo rpm -U mod-pagespeed-*.rpm

Restart apache2 to apply the changes:

sudo service apache2 restart
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Done, the module is installed.

In the future, it will be updated with the system commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

If necessary, you can deactivate / activate the module with the commands:

sudo a2dismod pagespeed
sudo a2enmod pagespeed

Or completely delete:

sudo apt-get remove mod-pagespeed-stable
sudo yum remove mod-pagespeed-stable

The configuration files for the module are located at:
/etc/apache2/mods-available/pagespeed.conf
/etc/httpd/conf.d/

Did my article help you? How about buying me a cup of coffee as an encouragement? Buy me a coffe.
