It's looking for me like a bug - when I'm using gzip in if in location and in this location is also proxy_pass - gzip doesn't compress requests.

For example:

gzip_types text/plain text/css application/json application/javascript application/x-javascript text/javascript text/xml application/xml application/rss+xml application/atom+xml application/rdf+xml image/svg+xml;
gzip_disable msie6;
gzip_comp_level 6;

server {

listen 80;

location / {

set $g 1;
if ($g = "1"){ gzip on; }
set $z 1;
if ($z = "1") { set $b ""; }

proxy_set_header Host "...";
proxy_pass https://...;



The problem appears when the second if is true and only with proxy_pass (fastcgi_pass, uwsgi_pass, proxy_pass work correctly).

That is because the request is processed in the context of the second "if", if ($z = "1") { set $b ""; }, and there is no gzip on in it. See and ticket #86 for details. This particular case isn't really a bug, but rather a result of how if works, and the only solution would be to disallow the "gzip" directive in if.

Thanks, I moved "if with gzip on" to the end of location and it solved my problem.
