Support » Plugin: Nginx Cache » Cache folder not being cleared

  • Hi there,

    I’m using your plugin in order to clear fastcgi cache. I have the right folder setup on the plugin dashboard, and I got the permissions after playing with my folder permissions for a little while.

    I save, everything OK.

    However, when I hit purge, nothing happens on my folder. The message says that everything went ok, but it is not the case. The folder elements are intact.

    What could the problem be?

    Thanks a lot

    There is an error showing up on the upper part of the WordPress admin dashboard.

    It says:

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /var/www/html/sectorasegurador.local/wp-content/plugins/nginx-cache/nginx-cache.php on line 210



    +1 here, I confirm that the cache folder is not being purged anymore..
    I hope this plugin is not abandoned.

    Hi there,

    I am facing the same issue here.

    With the same error as above.

    Any fix for this?

    Hi again.

    I fixed it, and can only confirm that it is a permission problem.

    First of all, give your folder and subfolders a 777 permission just to make sure that the problem is this one:

    sudo chmod -R 777 your-cache-folder

    Then, reload the plugin page on you WP dashboard, and see if there is no message and if you can effectively purge. Hit the button and check if the folder emptied.

    If it didn’t empty, then you could be missing the ngx_cache_purge module from your Nginx installation. This is a module that doesn’t come by default, and you have to make sure this module is installed before proceeding because deletion is carried out through some queries that depend on this.

    This is an unofficial module, but it is well maintained and supported, and works like a charm. I’m using in production because I just have no other choice. The official one is nginx_cache_purge that comes with the Nginx with Nginx extras installation.
