We have one very frustrating issue when posting a request with compressed body to our PHP script.
If we don’t use compression everything is ok, but when we compress the body and put header “Content-Encoding: gzip” then only a part of the request is received in the script and therefore generates error. Usually our requests uncompressed are approximately 220K (46K compressed) and we receive approximately 180K in the script. max_post_size in php.ini is 8MB so this is not an issue. We have verified that the whole data package is received on network level therefore the problem is in Apache or it’s deflate module.
The same script runs without any issues for 3+ years on our old server and therefore it is tested enough. I thought it’s maybe a problematic distribution and we made a second droplet with a different distribution but the same problem persists.
That’s why I am writing here to ask you if you can help us to resolve it.
Looking forward to hear from you.
