A post by a Microsoft supporter on this Microsoft website states that you can't override noCompressionForHttp10 in the web.config file.

Can the httpCompression section be changed from "AppHostOnly" to "Everywhere" so that you could do this? Is this a bad idea?

If the noCompressionForHttp10 parameter will not take effect on individual locations, and that is (as it sounds) a bug, changing the section's configuration scope with allowDefinition won't help you. You might just end up breaking something.

Choose, server-wide, between true or false
