Cache purge plugin


#1

Do I need cache purge plugin if I don’t use fastcgi_cache?

Also, I noticed that wordpress seo option (add trailing slash to urls) conflicts with the enhanced disk caching in the w3tc setup, so I thought that is maybe worth sharing.

If you don't use fastcgi_cache you don't need cache purge plugin.However this plugin can fix some other nginx+wordpress issue.


#3

Could you clarify what fixes is cache purge plugin responsible for?


#4
Removes index.php from permalinks when using WordPress with nginx.

Thanks, appreciate the response, Doesn't Wordpress SEO plugin already do that?

@yazeed if you are on wordpress + nginx and not seeing index.php in permalinks, then you do not need to install nginx-helper (unless you are using fastcgi-cache).

Re. the second part of the original question above: I too am finding W3TC allowing non-trailing slash urls (particularly wp pages not posts) in disk enhanced mode, as if it is overriding normal wp configuration, e.g., both example.com/about and example.com/about/ work. This creates a duplicate content issue.

(I’m using ee 2.2.2 wpfc).

Three of the last four releases of W3TC have trailing slash fixes, including 0.9.3:

Fixed trailing slash and redirect with apache

Does the problem lie (or is a solution possible) in the nginx.conf?
