Description

We are using lighttpd with mod_deflate, mod_proxy_core and X-Sendfile to serve static pages from /dev/shm cache. If HTTP client has compression disabled, lighttpd returns proper headers without content at all.

Example:


ab -v 5 -n 1 -c 1 -H "Accept-Encoding: gzip" http://www.nokaut.pl/ 

works ok


ab -v 5 -n 1 -c 1 http://www.nokaut.pl/
}}} 
returns the following headers, but no content:
{{{
LOG: header received:
HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Content-type: text/html
ETag: "-2667053398680807985" 
Accept-Ranges: bytes

Connection: close

Server: Web 2.0

LOG: Response code = 200
..done

mod_deflate works correctly for PHP scripts which are not using X-Sendfile as well as for static files.

In case the bug is not easily reproduced, I can send you our configuration details by email.

We have added a workaround in PHP code: X-Sendfile is not used if $_SERVERHTTP_ACCEPT_ENCODING is not set.

lighttpd 1.4.x branch is now far more advanced and continues to be maintained.
