We are trying to setup a reverse proxy for load balancing in front of two web servers. We need a reverse proxy that can handle https requests as well as provide gzip compression and allows for rewrites at the proxy level.
Pound would work but it does not provide gzip compression
HAproxy would be great but no https support
nginx would be an option but the limited english documentation is giving us some headaches.
Does anyone have any other recommendations or are there any nginx experts that would be willing to give us some guidance on our config file?
