    This tutorial will help user learn how to disable the compression of files.This can be done by disabling apache gzip. For example let us say that we want to disable compression for mp3 files, which a client get as a response by hitting a particular url.We add the following rule in .htaccess file.

    <Directory /home/user/www>
    
        SetOutputFilter DEFLATE 
        SetEnvIfNoCase Request_URI \.mp3$ no-gzip dont-vary 
    </Directory>
    

    Now the server will disable the compression for mp3 files and also check if the browser cache is cleared before we test.
