Support » Plugin: Koko Analytics » Koko-Analytics with nginx cache

    Hello,
    I have setup nginx to cache page requests as described here:

    https://restorebin.com/fastcgi-nginx-cache/#create-fastcgicache-configuration-under-/snippets/

    For looged in users the caching is disabled in this tutorial by an if request as:

    # Don't use the cache for cookied logged in users or recent commenters
    if ($http_cookie ~* "comment_author|wordpress_[a-f0-9]+|wp-postpass|wordpress_no_cache|wordpress_logged_in|woocommerce_cart_hash|woocommerce_items_in_cart") {
    set $skip_cache 1;
    }

    If I open my site in a new private window and access a previously cached site (by another person, not me) – I also receive a “x-cache HIT” in the server response – so I assume that kokos-analythics can’t set a cookie or count the correct amount of users?
    Does anybody have experience with this or can help me configuring the cache correctly?

    Thanks

    mathse

    Hello Mathse,

    As long as the tracking request (to either koko-analytics-collect.php or /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=koko_analytics_collect) is not cached, you should be good to go. Koko Analytics will work with pages served from cache, so no further changes are necessary.

    Hello and thanks for the reply!
    You are absolutely right, I whitelisted “koko-analytiscs-collect.php” and everything works now. Thanks for this great plugin!
