My site is full of pre-compressed gzip files. In all cases, except for the index.html file, I don't need the non-gzip versions.
For example, if I have 1.html.gz, then I don't need to also have 1.html on my site.
And yet, if I have an index.html.gz file but I don't have an index.html, then my site completely fails to load. Is there a way to avoid this redundancy, or do I just need to cope with it?
NOTE: If it matters at all, my server's run by NGINX.
EDIT: even if I edit /etc/nginx/nginx.conf to have the line index index.html.gz, then it'll deliver the index page as a download-only file!
