nginx (pronounced “engine-x”) is an open source Web server and a reverse proxy server for HTTP, SMTP, POP3 and IMAP protocols, with a strong focus on high concurrency, performance and low memory usage. It is licensed under a BSD-like license and it runs on Unix, Linux, BSD variants, Mac OS X, Solaris, AIX and Microsoft Windows [WikiPedia]

Instructs proxy servers to cache two versions of the resource: one compressed, and one uncompressed. This helps avoid issues with public proxies that do not detect the presence of a Content-Encoding header properly.

Configuration files are provided using Gist  https://gist.github.com/1620307 and are CONSTANTLY updated for added security and speed. Gist is a simple way to share snippets and pastes with others. All gists are git repositories, so they are automatically versioned, forkable and usable as a git repository. I recommend you to starred them to stay up to date.

 

Just Add in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf in the http { … } section the following

 ##
 # Gzip Settings
 ##
 gzip  on;
 gzip_http_version 1.1;
 gzip_vary on;
 gzip_comp_level 6;
 gzip_proxied any;
 gzip_types text/plain text/html text/css application/json \
application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml \
application/xml+rss text/javascript application/javascript \
text/x-js; gzip_buffers 16 8k; gzip_disable "MSIE [1-6]\.(?!.*SV1)";
