4. Please leave compression turned OFF
NEVER have caching or compression turned ON while developing, because:
a) you can always test to see if these processes work early on after install but turn them OFF while actually developing. Otherwise you'll find yourself making changes in the back-end but not seeing them in the front-end.
After development and during debugging before going live you can turn them back on again.
b) it makes it much harder for us to help you when caching and compression is ON. We can't see the contents of your cache and we have no clue what CSS file css-62772285f72c78f6d865166b5edd82f6.php refers to ???
For an excellent explanation of caching systems see this article by Andy ->
