ALT Multifield Errors with gzip turned on

Bug Report


My EE version is 2.3.1 Build 20111017
Browser Chrome 15.0.874.121
Platform Mac OS X
Running Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS)
MySQL 5.5.14
PHP Version 5.3.3

With gzip turned on, the error I am getting is:

Error 330 (net::ERR_CONTENT_DECODING_FAILED): Unknown error

When I turn off gzip, it goes away. Could you please help? I got this same error recently with low variables and low managed to solve the issue for me. Its something to do with PHP 5.3.3 apparently.

I will take a look at this.

Just for the record, though, I generally advise people to turn EE’s gzip encoding off and do gzipping properly through the webserver, however—I’ve run into a LOT of issues over the years.

Thanks Adrienne. Would love to know more about doing “gzipping properly through the webserver”. Can you point me towards some resources on how I would do this with #eecms?

It’s not something that’s dependent on your CMS—the instructions would be the same for any CMS. What web server are you using?

Here’s links for Apache gzipping, IIS 7+ gzipping, or IIS 6 gzipping.

As for the EE option to gzip output, I really wish we could kill it with fire. I have had a HUGE number of issues with it over the years.
