My frontpage is taking around 30 minutes to reflect changes

Hi All,

I’ve got my server setup with Nginx, fast-cgi, nginx purge and the wordpress helper and everything is running fantastically.

However I have a problem where the front page isn’t being refreshed when a new post goes live. It takes around 30 minutes before the new posts start showing on the page.

As a logged in user to wordpress I see the post go live instantly as I’m bypassing the cache but readers need a direct link to read the article.

I’ve changed my logging to show all info and I just did an update now and have the following 2017-05-04 05:42:06 | INFO | Function purgePost BEGIN === 2017-05-04 05:42:06 | INFO | Purging homepage ‘’ 2017-05-04 05:42:06 | INFO | - Purging URL | 2017-05-04 05:42:06 | INFO | - - *** PURGED ***

So there appears to be no errors but the latest posts don’t show?

Any ideas?

Thanks, Gavin

[UPDATE] So after I posted this and enabled full logging the problem has magically disappeared. I’m not sure if it’s related to the change in logging as that’s all I changed but it is working now. So if you come across this as someone with the same problem maybe try that?

Its for sure nothing related to the errorlog level.

Probably an issue with your local cache? Have you tried hard refreshing the browser’s page via ctrl+f5? Is this behavior occuring when using an icognito window too?

Also, are you sure that your theme “woohoo” is not including a caching mechanism built in?

either do service php7.0-fpm restart or run ee clean --all
