Remote Cache Purger

Description

One common method of caching content for websites is via the use of reverse proxy caching. Common examples of this are Varnish and Nginx. These systems allow a website to update content and have the visitor’s experience cached without the need for complex plugins storing the files locally and using up a user’s disk space.

The Remote Cache Purger plugin sends a request to delete (aka flush) the cached data of a page or post to remote server(s).

How It Works

Manually

Installation

No special instructions apply.

Requirements

  • A server based proxy cache service (only Nginx for now) which responds to PURGE request.
