Download mod_pagespeed in Centos.
First thing first, make sure your server is updated & upgraded before you begin , for this enter the following command in terminal. (You can always check this page for releases)
sudo yum update && yum upgrade -y
This will automatically update all your Centos system packages and upgrade system if required. (This might take some time).
Once the upgrade is finished , enter the following commands.
