  • Resolved dasigna


    hi there,

    using your plugin for years and loving it for its simplicity and reliability.

    now, after the security issue lately my hosting provider suggests me to not use this plugin anymore due to potential issues with their server-side nginx cache.
    reason: two not identical caches. AO cant handle extra caches. minified assets are not in both caches (only in AO) which can potentially lead to errors due to missing assets.

    not enough knowledge here to judge whether this is completely true… in fact i used AO on their servers for years without encountering any problems alike.
    sometimes some missing content on frontend after changes without clearing caches, but thats not unusual at all imho.

    whats the story behind?
    are they right? and if so – what can be done from AO to cure this issue?

    thanks in advance for clearings πŸ™‚

    Theoretically this *could* give issues, but simply make sure to clear the server-side page cache if (when) you clear AO’s and all will be fine. Additionally you can tick the “404 handler” option near the bottom of the main settings-page in case you ever forget to clear the page cache πŸ™‚

    hope this clarifies,
