What does the error log say?

Is there something like

no "charset_map" between the charsets "utf-8" and "iso-8859-1" while reading response header from upstream

there? Because that could explain why the conversion does not happen.

I think that that Apache config will set the Content-Type header
on responses it sends; but will not do anything to actually make the
response body be valid iso-8859-1.

The nginx "charset" module expects to modify the response body if
necessary.

You can try adding a charset_map (http://nginx.org/r/charset_map) --
either a full one that maps between the one-byte iso-8859-1 values and
utf-8 values that differ; or just an empty one and let the &# conversion
happen instead.

charset_map iso-8859-1 utf-8 { }

or include extra pieces like

E9 C3A9 ; # LATIN SMALL LETTER E WITH ACUTE

if you want explicit conversion.
