Nginx Cache Controller
Cache Flush doesn't work (fastcgi_cache) (5 posts)

    I can't seem to get the cache to flush when using your plugin. A lot of the other plugins assume that nginx is working as a front end proxy for apache, but does this plugin work with fastcgi_cache?

    This plugin works both with fastcgi_cache and proxy_cache.
    When you press flush plugin searching cached files in nginx cache dir and tries to delete them.
    Probably your php script has no sufficient rights to delete cache files.

    Both wordpress and nginx are running as www-data user, and I've checked all the permissions. The cache location is /var/cache/nginx. I can't seem to find any reason why the script shouldn't be able to remove

    Are there any specific config options that must be a certain way to work?

    HI dangayle,

    I was update this plugin.
    Are you solved this issue?

    I'm also having trouble with "Flush All" (in the admin console, as a test).

    I can see the AJAX request is getting executed, but the cache directory still has all the files.

    Do I need to install anything on the nginx side to enable cache flushing?
