W3 Total Cache
Pre-compressed files saved as _gzip instead of .gz (5 posts)

    According to the NGINX wiki, NGINX only looks for pre-compressed files ending in .gz, not _gzip.

    Seems like a bug to me.

    There is no bug. You looked at the GzipStatic wiki. Please have a look at Gzip wiki. You do not need to enable compression using W3 Total Cache plugin. You can do this directly using Nginx that is much more efficient, anyway.

    It is not. The goal is to not having to compress files on-the-fly but serve pre-compressed files instead. That is much more efficient.

    I have read somewhere that it is what this feature is meant for, however NGINX HttpGzipStaticModule only looks for pre-compressed files ending in .gz and not _gzip like this plug-in currently saves them as.

    [ Stop bumping, that's not permitted here. ]
