Support » Plugin: NGINX Manager » [Plugin: NGINX Manager] question about the functionality

  • I understand this is only for automatically emptying the cache, can you please add a link on how to set up a cache?
    what type of cache is this emptying?
    What is being cached anyway?

    I just moved to a new VPS server using nginx + PHP-fastcgi

    no caching set up yet, except for using the w3 total cache plugin.

    haven’t set any expires headers either, still reading up on that matter.

    Hi Ovidiu and thanks for your interest in our plugin.

    You can find a Nginx Configuration example in the Overview submenu page in Nginx Manager plugin page.

    Hope this helps.

    ah, I see. I should be fine with those examples, except I am not sure what these lines are supposed to be/mean/do:

    proxy_pass http://ALL_backend;`


    proxy_pass http://ALL_ADMIN_backend;

    what do I replace ALL_backend with? are those variables?

    oh and did Iread this right that all I need to replace in that example are:

    – /path/to/cache/your_cache

    and maybe the caching times/duration, I mean the rest are just set variables, right?

    proxy_pass http://ALL_backend;

    ALL_backend and ALL_ADMIN_backend are two variable that contains the addresses of all the backend and admin backend server.

    In our configuration we have something like

    upstream ALL_backend  {
      server backup;
    upstream ALL_ADMIN_backend  {
      server backup;

    About the things to change: the other values are about the cache duration etc. It’s better you read NGINX wiki for details.




    thanks for all that info, but I am wondering why the Nginx Configuration example in the Overview submenu page in Nginx Manager plugin page doesn’t even mention the need to set up the backends as Hpatoio explained. I think that is valuable information.

    Btw. is there a specific need to have a separate proxy for ALL_backend and ALL_ADMIN_backend?
