SSL Compression
#1
Is there any point in using it if you already have gzip compression enabled already?
If so, how do I configure nginx to use SSL compression?

Also, will using SSL visibly slow down your websites?
#2
Looks like a compile time option http://trac.nginx.org/nginx/changeset/4186/nginx

But see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/ssl/ssl_faq.html#comp .
Since gzip also uses DEFLATE, you aren't going to see any advantages, only disadvantages.

SSL is slower because of the initial handshake and the additional load it puts on your server.
#3
So SSL compression is basically the same thing as gzip compression?
#4
Yeah, at least SSL is. TLS (basically SSL v3.1+) apparently has support for LZS
