Subject Re: An error occurred during decompression

thank you very much for your fast reply!

With your help, I have managed to figure out what the issue was.

I had a " AddEncoding x-gzip gz tgz" in my apache config. Once I removed
that it now appears to work correctly again.

The  --config-option servers:global:http-compression=no  option also worked.

Enabling or disabling mod_deflate did on the other hand not appear to
make any difference (or my enabling/disabling did not take effect).

The apache version is 2.4.7

Thank you again, for helping me fix this!
