mysterious gzip malfunction on nginx
March 20, 2019 03:25AM
· gzip shows as not enabled on my vps site

· and not even the tech support of my host, asmallorange, can figure out the cause of my problem

· hopefully someone here can

· i've documented my **exact** set-up (nothing more than this was done)

1) i installed centos 7 minimal

2) i logged in via putty

3) then i input the following commands

3a) yum update

3b) yum clean all

3c) yum install epel-release

3d) yum install nginx

3e) systemctl enable nginx

3f) vi /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

user nginx;
worker_processes auto;
error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;
pid /run/nginx.pid;

events {
worker_connections 1024;
}

http {
log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '
'$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
'"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log main;

sendfile on;
tcp_nopush on;
tcp_nodelay on;
keepalive_timeout 65;
types_hash_max_size 2048;

server_tokens off;

include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;

limit_conn_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=addr:8m;
limit_req_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=mylimit:16m rate=16r/s;

server {
listen 80 default_server;
listen [::]:80 default_server;
server_name abcj.me;
root /srv;
index index-l1.html

gzip on;
gzip_vary on;
gzip_min_length 1024;
gzip_types text/css text/plain;

client_body_timeout 8;
client_header_timeout 8;

location ~* \.(css|ico|jpeg|jpg|js|mp3|mp4|pdf|png|txt|webp|zip)$ {
expires 16d;
}

location ~* \.(html)$ {
expires 1d;
}

error_page 404 /404-l1.html;
location = /40x.html {
}

error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
location = /50x.html {
}
}

server {
listen 80;
server_name www.abcj.me;
return 301 http://abcj.me$request_uri;
}
}

3g) service nginx restart

4) i uploaded index-l1.html to srv via winscp


· nginx -V 2>&1 | tr -- - '\n' | grep module

· shows that i have

·· http_gzip_static_module

·· http_gunzip_module

· curl -H "Accept-Encoding: gzip" -I http://abcj.me/index-l1.html

·· does not show gzip acceptance

·· does not show gzip acceptance

· the gzip commands need to be directly in the http block, not in the server block

user nginx;
worker_processes auto;
error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;
pid /run/nginx.pid;

events {
worker_connections 1024;
}

http {
log_format main '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] "$request" '
'$status $body_bytes_sent "$http_referer" '
'"$http_user_agent" "$http_x_forwarded_for"';

access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log main;

sendfile on;
tcp_nopush on;
tcp_nodelay on;
keepalive_timeout 65;
types_hash_max_size 2048;

server_tokens off;

include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;

limit_conn_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=addr:8m;
limit_req_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=mylimit:16m rate=16r/s;

gzip on;
gzip_vary on;
gzip_min_length 1024;
gzip_types text/css text/plain;

server {
listen 80 default_server;
listen [::]:80 default_server;
server_name abcj.me;
root /srv;
index index-l1.html

client_body_timeout 8;
client_header_timeout 8;

location ~* \.(css|ico|jpeg|jpg|js|mp3|mp4|pdf|png|txt|webp|zip)$ {

}

location ~* \.(html)$ {

}

error_page 404 /404-l1.html;
location = /40x.html {
}

error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
location = /50x.html {
}
}

server {
listen 80;
server_name www.abcj.me;
return 301 http://abcj.me$request_uri;
}
}
