How to install Google Pagespeed on Easy Apache 4

The PageSpeed modules are open-source server modules that optimize your site automatically.

If you haven’t guessed it, this module directly complements Google’s PageSpeed Insights. It’s a great tool for giving you feedback on what can be done to optimize your site. What I’ve found is many of the issues this tool reports back to you can be resolved automatically by the PageSpeed module , Simply by installing it. Google can tell you what needs to be optimized and how to optimize it, so why not let them do it for you?

Installation Procedure (CentOS):

yum install rpm-build cpio ea-apache24-mod_version
rpmbuild --rebuild ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed-latest-stable.src.rpm
rpm -ivh /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed*.rpm
/etc/init.d/httpd restart or service httpd restart

Note: 1- if you get following error on Step 3 :
“RPM build errors:
File must begin with “/”: %{_httpd_moddir}/*.so
File must begin with “/”: %{_httpd_modconfdir}/*.conf”

Just create a file named “macros.apache2″ in ‘/etc/rpm/ directory and paste the below content into that and then restart from step 3.

 %_httpd_mmn 20120211x8664
 %_httpd_apxs /usr/bin/apxs
 %_httpd_dir /etc/apache2
 %_httpd_bindir %{_httpd_dir}/bin
 %_httpd_modconfdir %{_httpd_dir}/conf.modules.d
 %_httpd_confdir %{_httpd_dir}/conf.d
 %_httpd_contentdir /usr/share/apache2
 %_httpd_moddir /usr/lib64/apache2/modules

2- you may face following error:
“rpmbuild –rebuild ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed-latest-stable.src.rpm
Installing ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed-latest-stable.src.rpm
error: ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed-latest-stable.src.rpm cannot be installed” 

Just look at your screen , go 1 step back and check the downloaded file name in some case may be different most of people just run ”  rpmbuild –rebuild ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed-latest-stable.src.rpm” command but sometimes file name can be different for example may be file saved as ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed-latest-stable.src.rpm.9 so in this case you should change file name in command before running that for above example just add .9 in end of command
  rpmbuild –rebuild ea-apache24-mod_pagespeed-latest-stable.src.rpm.9

Now Login into your WHM panel > Software > EasyApache4 and look for “mod_pagespeed” option and enable it after that restart apache again and run insight  then check your website speed performance!
