-Apache is also able to serve the [gzipped](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gzip) version of your assets; however, it requires a bit more work:
-
-```apache
-<LocationMatch "^/assets/.*$">
- Header unset ETag
- FileETag None
-
- # RFC says only cache for 1 year
- ExpiresActive On
- ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 year"
-
- RewriteEngine On
- RewriteCond %{HTTP:Accept-Encoding} gzip
- RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} !Konqueror
- RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.gz -f
- RewriteRule ^(.+).(css|js)$ $1.$2.gz [QSA,L]
-</LocationMatch>
-
-<FilesMatch \.css\.gz>
- ForceType text/css
-</FilesMatch>
-
-<FilesMatch \.js\.gz>
- ForceType application/javascript
-</FilesMatch>
-AddEncoding gzip .gz
-```
-
-NOTE: You will need to make sure `mod_headers`, `mod_mime` and `mod_rewrite` are loaded; otherwise, the above configuration will fail.
+A robust configuration for Apache is possible but tricky; please Google around. (Or help update this Guide if you have a good example configuration for Apache.)
