Enable HTTP/2 Using Easy Apache 4
Those using our VPS hosting without LiteSpeed have been asking how they can enable HTTP/2 on their server.
Thankfully our friends over at cPanel have listened to these requests and now place the module directly inside Easy Apache 4.
During the cPanel conference this fall in Florida, I actually sat in on a session, where one of the developers gave a presentation about how easy it is to add.
All you have to do is go into Easy Apache 4 and select the module when compiling PHP with Apache.:
As you can see, unlike Easy Apache 3, it only takes a couple of minutes to run fully enabling HTTP/2 support on your website.
How To Test Your Website For HTTP/2
When you’re finished you can check using the following browser extensions:
- HTTP/2 and SPDY indicator (Chrome extension)
- HTTP/2 and SPDY indicator (Firefox extension)
- Firebug (Firefox)
