Well-known member
When using a properly configured webserver, it is possible to serve pre-compressed (gzip, brotli) assets to supporting browsers.
This does save bandwidth and server CPU as those assets can be compressed with the hightest possible compression and do not need to be compressed on the fly when requested by clients.

However, fully supporting this requires additional work in cases of One-Click/ZIP upgrades & installations.

It would therefore be nice if XenForo could optionally create the necessary files automatically upon installation/upgrade if enabled and the necessary PHP extensions are available.
