  gzip_static on;

curl -i --compressed  http://localhost/file.html 

will get file.html.gz if it exists, with "Content-Encoding: gzip";

or file.html if that exists, or 404.

Check the "bytes sent" field in your access_log to see which was

sent. Omit the "--compressed" in the curl command to see the difference.

hi again ,
Thanks for your help
 Francis Daly I did what you suggested but it doesn't work. Access.log says both times with --compressed or without it "200 162" for the nginx welcome screen.It is very weird.
