Cheers for that.

I've got this in /etc/nginx/sites.enabled/default

  location /memento {
      proxy_pass http://localhost:5984/memento;
      proxy_set_header Host $host;

And gzip turned on in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:
        gzip on;
        gzip_disable "msie6";

        gzip_vary on;
        gzip_proxied any;
        gzip_comp_level 6;
        gzip_buffers 16 8k;
        gzip_http_version 1.1;
        gzip_types text/plain text/css application/json
application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss

But after restarting nginx, it seems like I'm still getting text/plain:

 wget  --header="Accept-Encoding: gzip" -S -O /dev/null
"http://localhost:80/memento/ ...
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Server: nginx/1.0.1
  Date: Wed, 25 May 2011 08:06:34 GMT
  Content-Type: text/plain;charset=utf-8
  Connection: close
  Vary: Accept-Encoding
  Cache-Control: must-revalidate

What am I missing here?
