Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » Status of nginx Support?

  • I know a while back I read nginx support was available in the development version, but I’ve never had much to do with nginx all that much so didn’t pay too much attention.

    Now, however, I have a couple sites that will benefit from nginx quite nicely, but was wondering what sort of support this plugin had for nginx. Can I just throw this on and it’ll just work? Or do I have to get funky with it and write out a special config for it?

    Thanks.

  • You can find loads of support on the official Nginx forums. You can just ‘throw it on’ but it’s much better to finetune it.

    You can’t just ‘throw it on’, especially on disk-enhanced mode and with browser cache. There are some installation instructions available when you click on the ‘Install’ menu of this plugin’s main menu. Please note that version 0.9.2.8 with disk-enhanced mode doesn’t work as expected. Please wait for a fix for it or find the fix at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/bug-disk-enhanced-caching-on-nginx-fails-due-to-a-typo-in-the-nginxconf-file?replies=4#post-3837623 .

    Pothi, are you saying that with your fix applied, nginx works with 0.9.2.8?

    PS: by ‘works’ i mean, without any issues or bugs at all. I tried it with Litespeed and it was a nightmare so I am reluctant to try it now I am using nginx + memcached.

    My fix will only work on sites with disk-enhanced mode. It may not even work with other modules switched on. If you look at my fix, I tested it in a condition that no one else would probably use. I didn’t even turn on the browser caching, while testing. So, I can’t be sure, if W3 Total Cache would work with nginx + memcached, with or without my fix. I hope this clarifies.
