Here the correct config for gzip :


Code:
[COLOR=#666666][FONT=Consolas]gzip on;
[/FONT][/COLOR]gzip_comp_level 2;
gzip_http_version 1.0;
gzip_proxied any;
gzip_min_length 1100;
gzip_buffers 16 8k;
gzip_types text/plain text/html text/css application/x-javascript text/xml application/xml application/xml+rss text/javascript;
gzip_disable "MSIE [1-6].(?!.*SV1)";
[COLOR=#666666][FONT=Consolas]gzip_vary on;[/FONT][/COLOR]

Exactly, your nginx.conf file should look like :

Code:
user www-data;worker_processes auto;
worker_rlimit_nofile 100000;
pid /run/nginx.pid;


events {
        worker_connections 4096;
        multi_accept on;
}


http {


        sendfile on;
        tcp_nopush on;
        tcp_nodelay on;
        keepalive_timeout 30;
        types_hash_max_size 2048;


        server_tokens off;
        reset_timedout_connection on;
        add_header rt-Fastcgi-Cache $upstream_cache_status;


        # Limit Request
        limit_req_status 403;
        limit_req_zone $binary_remote_addr zone=one:10m rate=1r/s;


        # Proxy Settings
        # set_real_ip_from      proxy-server-ip;
        # real_ip_header        X-Forwarded-For;


        fastcgi_read_timeout 300;
        client_max_body_size 100m;


        ##
        # SSL Settings
        ##


        ssl_session_cache shared:SSL:20m;
        ssl_session_timeout 10m;
        ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
        ssl_ciphers ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:ECDHE-ECDSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384:DHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256:DHE-DSS-AES128-GCM-SHA256:kEDH+AESGCM:ECDHE-RSA-A$
        ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;


        ##
        # Basic Settings
        ##
        # server_names_hash_bucket_size 64;
        # server_name_in_redirect off;
        include /etc/nginx/mime.types;
        default_type application/octet-stream;


         ##
        # Logging Settings
        ##


        access_log /var/log/nginx/access.log;
        error_log /var/log/nginx/error.log;


        # Log format Settings
        log_format rt_cache '$remote_addr $upstream_response_time $upstream_cache_status [$time_local] '
        '$http_host "$request" $status $body_bytes_sent '
        '"$http_referer" "$http_user_agent"';


        ##
        # Gzip Settings
        ##


        gzip on;
        gzip_disable "msie6";


        gzip_vary on;
        gzip_proxied any;
        gzip_comp_level 6;
        gzip_buffers 16 8k;

            text/x-component
            text/xml
            text/javascript;


        ##
        # Virtual Host Configs
        ##


        include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
        include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*;

Star with connecting to your hosting via SSH.

Then you will need to configure the configuration file, do that by editing it:
sudo nano /etc/nginx/nginx.conf

Now un-comment the things you want and comment the things you dont want. (or use a ready configureation form sofwhere else such as here)

After configuring the configuration file to your needs, save/close it and restart nginx.
nginx restart

NOTE:
modify the command to suit your OS
Use config settings best to your needs
where I used nano to edit you can use anything else.

If you need specific help with your OS or any specific help let me know as this tutorial was pretty general.
