NGINX disable ngx_pagespeed on /backend

I`m using Shopware and i want to disable the pagespeed plugin for my backend which is accessible trough

Now i had this location block - but it does not work, i`m getting an error in my config if i reload nginx

location /backend/ {
pagespeed off;


Reloading nginx configuration: nginx: [emerg] "pagespeed" directive is not allowed here in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

Does anybody has a solution ?

Should be in vhost.conf

ngx_pagespeed & ngx_pagespeed handler

#include /usr/local/nginx/conf/pagespeed.conf; pagespeed off; #include /usr/local/nginx/conf/pagespeedhandler.conf; #include /usr/local/nginx/conf/pagespeedstatslog.conf;

You could instead disable all Pagespeed filters in that location block.
