Gzip/deflate at origin server


Cloudflare deflate/br content themself. Do we need to use mod_deflate at origin before content is passed to Cloudflare?

Why does Cloudflare not set VARY: Accept encoding? Is it necessary. Should we set it at origin server along with deflate?

Hi @user3011,

Hope this helps. :slight_smile:
