Horde webmail : Content Encoding Error (content_encoding_error)

Error while opening the Horde Webmail interface :


Error:Content Encoding Error (content_encoding_error)Server response could not be decoded using encoding type returned by server.


This is typically caused by a Web site hosting presenting a content encoding header of one type, and then encoding the data differently.

To get this fixed, follow the below mentioned steps :

Find the Horde config file ‘conf.php’ on the server:which can be normally found in this path: “C:\Inetpub\vhosts\webmail\horde\config\conf.php”

Search for the following in that config file:

$conf[‘compress_pages’] = true;
Change it into:

$conf[‘compress_pages’] = false;
Save the horde config file & restart the webmail client. And…. you’re done
