Hello Zhang,

I found that despite gzip compression is on, many well compressable items are not compressed by nginx.

Cause: MIME type is application/javascript and not (only) text/javascript.

To fix it, change

gzip_types text/plain text/css text/xml text/javascript text/json application/json application/x-javascript application/xml application/xml+rss;

to

gzip_types text/plain text/css text/xml text/javascript text/json application/json application/x-javascript application/xml application/xml+rss application/javascript;

in /etc/nginx/conf-enabled/gzip.conf


In addition to above, 6% less data with reasonable CPU consumption can be achieved by setting compression level to 6

gzip_comp_level 6;

Please check for faster page loading times and fewer traffic smile

Best regards,
Bernhard

Does my reply help a little? How about buying me a cup of coffee ($5) as an encouragement?
