Prevent gzip compression?
I have an installation of Request Tracker on an Ubuntu server running Apache2, and I am trying to access it via an IIS7 server via reverse proxying (ie. so that http://domain.com/rt goes to http://rt/).
However, I am being hit by an error in IIS7 which tells me that it can't rewrite compressed responses - and the RT install is compressing pages with gzip.
So, my question is - how do I stop it doing this, and get it to simply return uncompressed data.

From memory, you need to disable the use of mod_deflate (though really, not being able to deal with compressed responses is a pretty poor show nowadays...)
edit: it is mod_deflate, though if you have an exotic setup it might be mod_gzip instead. mod_deflate - Apache HTTP Server

I found a more elegant solution in the end. I did my reverse proxying on our Ubuntu box instead. Meaning everything is handled properly.
