Forum: NGINX the http output chain is empty bug (nginx lua module)

Announcement (2017-05-07): is now read-only since I unfortunately do not have the time to support and maintain the forum any more. Please see and for other Rails- und Ruby-related community platforms.

nginx >= 1.5.7
nginx-lua-module >= 0.9.8 (possibly older version)
CentOS 6

# ./sbin/nginx -V
nginx version: nginx/1.5.7
built by gcc 4.4.7 20120313 (Red Hat 4.4.7-3) (GCC)
configure arguments: --add-module=../lua-nginx-module

Config file

user nginx;
worker_processes 1;

error_log /var/log/nginx/nginx-error.log error;

events {
  use epoll;

http {
  gzip on;

  server {
    listen 80;
    root /usr/local/nginx/html;

    location = /empty/ {

    location = /include/ {
      content_by_lua '

    location = /ssi.html {
      ssi on;

Content of /usr/local/nginx/html/ssi.html
<!--#include virtual="/include/" wait="yes" -->

Or request http://localhost/ssi.html (with header Accept-Encoding: gzip)
become blank response (without headers and without body)
And in log
[alert] 20457#0: *1 the http output chain is empty, client:,
server: , request: "GET /ssi.html HTTP/1.1", subrequest: "/include/"

How I can fix it?

Unlikely it's related.
