Description

gzip_static always works as expected until you add "try_files @uri =404;" to the location.

It seems that try_files requires the original file to work there and is not affected by gzip_static always.

##WORKS FINE
server {

listen 80 default_server;
listen [::]:80 default_server;
root /home/thisistheroot;
server_name _;
gzip_static always;
location / {}

}

##DOES NOT WORK
server {

listen 80 default_server;
listen [::]:80 default_server;
root /home/thisistheroot;
server_name _;
gzip_static always;
location / {

# try_files $uri =404;

}

}

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

That's because try_files $uri =404 requires the <root>$uri file to exist, see the try_files directive documentation. While with gzip_static always this file isn't needed to serve the request, and the <root>$uri.gz file is used instead. Similarly, the index directive won't work with try_files $uri =404 as well.

Depending on what you are trying to do, possible solutions might be to either not use try_files at all, or to create corresponding empty files to satisfy the try_files $uri =404 test.
