Synopsis

Before serving a file from disk to a gzip-enabled client, this module will look for a precompressed file in the same location that ends in ".gz". The purpose is to avoid compressing the same file each time it is requested.

./configure --with-http_gzip_static_module

Example

gzip_static on;
 
gzip_http_version   1.1;
gzip_proxied        expired no-cache no-store private auth;
gzip_disable        "MSIE [1-6]\.";
gzip_vary           on;

Directives

gzip_static

Syntax: gzip_static on | off | always
Default: off
