Gzipped content being sent to HTTP/1.0 clients?

Hi everyone,

I'm using gzip and proxy_cache together, proxying to an Apache backend.
Some of my clients are complaining that they are getting gzipped content
which their browser is displaying without un-gzipping it, presumably
because they getting served gzipped content when their browser doesn't
support it.

I noticed that HTTP/1.0 clients are getting served gzipped content even
though gzip_http_version is set to 1.1. That should never happen, right?
I guess it is because a 1.1 client requested it first, and it got
cached? Here's the log of an HTTP/1.0 client (wget) grabbing the resource:

wget -d

Note that the backend isn't sending a gzipped response to Nginx:


wget --header="Host:www.chickensmoothie.com" -d
"http://localhost:8080/Forum/style.php?id=9&lang=en&v=1312084157"

Here's my config details:

nginx: nginx version: nginx/1.0.4

gzip on;
gzip_disable "MSIE [1-6]\.(?!.*SV1)";
gzip_buffers 16 4k;
gzip_types text/plain text/html text/css application/json
application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss
text/javascript;
gzip_vary on;
gzip_http_version 1.1;

proxy_temp_path /caches/proxy_temp;
proxy_cache_path /caches/nginx levels=1:2 keys_zone=one:50m inactive=3d
max_size=10g;

server {
listen 80 default;
server_name _;

index index.php index.html index.htm;

location /Forum/style.php {
proxy_passhttp://127.0.0.1:8080;
proxy_redirect off;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header Host $host;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_read_timeout 600;
proxy_intercept_errors on;

proxy_cache one;
proxy_cache_key $host$request_uri;
proxy_cache_valid 200 301 302 2000m;
proxy_cache_use_stale error timeout invalid_header updating;
}
}

I've disabled the proxy_cache for the moment, which seems to fix this
behaviour (HTTP/1.0 clients get a plain response, HTTP/1.1 clients who
send an accept-encoding:gzip get a gzipped response).

Cheers,
Nicholas Sherlock
