Installing From Packages

If you're using Nginx you need to build from source. These packages are Apache-only.

Latest Beta Version
Latest Stable Version

Supported platforms

To install the packages, on Debian/Ubuntu, please run the following command:

sudo dpkg -i mod-pagespeed-*.deb
sudo apt-get -f install

For CentOS/Fedora, please execute:

sudo yum install at  # if you do not already have 'at' installed
sudo rpm -U mod-pagespeed-*.rpm

Installing mod_pagespeed will add the Google repository so your system will automatically keep mod_pagespeed up to date. If you don't want Google's repository, do sudo touch /etc/default/mod-pagespeed before installing the package.

You can also download a number of system tests. These are the same tests available on

How to upgrade

To upgrade from a previous version, use the standard yum or apt-get update commands. For example:

sudo yum update mod-pagespeed-beta  # Or mod-pagespeed-stable
sudo /etc/init.d/httpd restart
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

To convert from one channel to another, uninstall one and re-install the other. For example, if you would like to move from stable to beta channel:

sudo apt-get install mod-pagespeed-beta
