I use nginx/0.6.32 from the Debian/testing repository, which might be
not the best choice. For example the mime.types file was missing.

I am trying to get nginx as a frontend for apache working. I am not
sure, but do those rules need the gzip_static module:

  # if the requested file exists, return it immediately
  if (-f $request_filename) {

  set $supercache_file '';
  set $supercache_uri $request_uri;

  if ($request_method = POST) {
  set $supercache_uri '';

  # Using pretty permalinks, so bypass the cache for any query string
  if ($query_string) {
  set $supercache_uri '';

  if ($http_cookie ~* "comment_author_|wordpress|wp-postpass_" ) {
  set $supercache_uri '';

  # if we haven't bypassed the cache, specify our supercache file
  if ($supercache_uri ~ ^(.+)$) {
  set $supercache_file

  # only rewrite to the supercache file if it actually exists
  if (-f $document_root$supercache_file) {
  rewrite ^(.*)$ $supercache_file break;

  # all other requests go to Wordpress
  if (!-e $request_filename) {
  rewrite . /index.php last;

When deleting those line in my default config, nginx and apache work
very well. But with those lines i am permanent redirected to Wordpress'
s main index.php.

Thus i had the idea that i need the gzip_static module, but the nginx
fetched from the Debian/testing repository seems not to be compiled with

sudo /etc/init.d/nginx restart
Restarting nginx: 2009/01/25 10:39:00 [emerg] 6672#0: unknown directive
"gzip_static" in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:23

Is that true? Or doesn' t gzip_static doesn' t exist any more what i
can' t read here
