Some of my user cannot access my website

Hi guys, I need your help to help me identify a problem. I’m running an
online marketplace here in Indonesia. Right now I have 1 mod perl server
using apache and 1 nginx server as proxy. But some of my users complain
they cannot access my website, And I found out
a fact that if they use mikrotik HttpProxy, they cannot access my
website, but they can access other website.

If they use firefox, they found err message : Content Encoding Error
If they use google chrome, they found err message :

Can you help me with this?

The messages suggest there is something wrong with the proxy in
question, most likely it fails to handle chunked encoding
properly. You may try to disable use of chunked transfer encoding

chunked_transfer_encoding off;

to see if it helps. Note though that it will also make keepalive
connections impossible if Content-Length isn’t known. You may
also try to disabling keepalive connections completely with

keepalive_timeout 0;

See here for details:
