Hi everyone,
I am trying to use nginx as a reverse proxy and I am getting garbage symbols
in my json responses:


I have tried with and without gzip and happens the same.

My backend responses are well formed json and then I think that it should be
a nginx issue.

Can anybody help me please ?

it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is
to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first
method is far more difficult.  -C. A. R. Hoare
