How To Save Traffic With nginx’s HttpGzipModule on Debian Jessie

In this tutorial, I will describe how to configure HttpGzipModule on a nginx web server (on Debian 8). HttpGzipModule allows nginx to compress files and deliver them to clients (e.g. browsers) that can handle compressed content which most modern browsers do.
