Does Nginx handle Content-Encoding: gzip ?

Does Nginx handle Content-Encoding: gzip ?

Apache, with the help of mod_deflate can handle gzip compressed [i]requests[/i] with the directive SetInputFilter DEFLATE.

Does Nginx handle compressed requests, i.e. ones with Content-Encoding: gzip ?

Right now when I POST a compressed request at Nginx it comes in as gzipped garbage into Phusion Passenger (that is Nginx doesn't decompress the incoming request before passing it on)

Thanks,
Ronen

Would love to know the answer to this one, since I'm running into the same issue... I have to POST enormous blobs of JSON from a client app, and would really like to compress them.

I'm also curious about handling compressed requests. You can do this with Apache by setting an input filter as described here: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mod_deflate.html#input

Does nginx have anything similar?

Yes, it does:

I certainly agree that nginx supports gzip compression for *responses*. And it's great at that :)

But I haven't seen the gzip module do *decompression* for *requests*.

That is, if a request body is compressed (say a POST of a large request containing some client data which is compressed, including *request* header Content-Encoding: gzip), does nginx support decompressing that request before handing the (now decompressed) request to some backend server?

Anyone knows if this is supported in current latest version?

This is a Lua feature and will always work because its not directly related to nginx-core.
Search for openresty.
