Joomla! 4.2.9 includes a Post Installation Message recommending users change a line in their website's HTACCESS file:


Header append Content-Encoding gzip


Header set Content-Encoding gzip

I have just updated Admin Tools to v7.3.1.

When I reissue the HTACCESS file using htaccessmaker I still see the old line (FROM above).

Will the new line be included in the next release of Admin Tools?

Many thanks,

Ken :)

yes, we already made the change in the code, so it will be included in the next release.
