It works for me

By Gulshan Kumar (thegulshankumar) on July 28, 2023

Love this plugin with LEMP stack.

Awesome plugin!

By FORQY (forqy) on September 14, 2022

Simple setup and everything works as it should! Thanks

Useless - Waste of time

By Mostafiz Shamim (itzmostafiz) on July 29, 2022

It doesn't work at all. It provides outdated content link to setup the cache module but that is also useless. Do not waste your time installing this plugin.

Works well :)

Clears cache when updating pages & posts as expected. Also great that it has a logging functionality, which allowed me to debug some problems.

Work like a charm

Nice plugin to manage your cache. The setup is quite simple! Just follow the instructions and you will be fine

Had high hopes but to be able to use this plugin to best potential you need to add a repository, according to the relevant guide which seems to date back 9 years. Errors:- E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/rtcamp/nginx/ubuntu focal Release' does not have a Release file. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default. So what's the point? I may be missing something (such as a guide that works? Am using your recommendation: https://easyengine.io/wordpress-nginx/tutorials/single-site/fastcgi-cache-with-purging/) so sort that out, let me know, and I'll gladly update this review. Meantime, damn, that was a few hours wasted.

Awesome Performance!

Kudos to rtCamp team for such an awesome plugin. Can't expect my hosting setup to be completed without this plugin. Exceptional performance :)

Very helpful!

If you have any doubts, test it, google it and then go live.

504 Gateway Time-out

By leondari on January 7, 2020

This is not on. You can't share an update which doesn't work. And I didn't even backup my site before I updated because I trusted you. Now I am sitting with an Nginx helper that doesn't help. How does that work out for you ?

Not working for some reason

By tomeryatir on January 1, 2020

Followed any guide to install the module on nginx. The purge won't work and won't show Log properly for misfunction. DOT NOT DELETE NGINX, it is better to add dynamic module instead.
