No compressed files are stored in the temporary folder (also known as the cache directory), even though a client that supports HTTP compression has requested them.
Internet Services were not restarted after HTTP compression was enabled.
Restart Internet Services. To do this, perform the following steps:
- Start the Internet Service Manager (ISM), which loads the Internet Information Server snap-in.
- Right-click the computer name, and then click Restart IIS on the Context menu.
- Select Restart Internet Services on
ComputerName, and then click OK.
When a file is requested, the compressed copy is stored in a temporary folder, and then sent when further requests are received. Files are not compressed prior to receiving a request for them.
Note: By default, the temporary folder is C:\WINNT\IIS Temporary Compressed Files. This is specified on the Service tab in the WWW Service Master Properties for
ComputerName dialog box in the IIS snap-in.
