ngx_cache_purge: closing the gap with Varnish

by ,


We have by far the largest RPM repository with dynamic stable NGINX modules and VMODs for Varnish 4.1 and 6.0 LTS. If you want to install nginx, Varnish and lots of useful modules for them, this is your one stop repository to get all performance related software.
You have to maintain an active subscription in order to be able to use the repository!

The ngx_cache_purge provides you with the ability to clear specific NGINX cache entries easily.
This is a feature present in NGINX Plus, but now you can easily add it to your open source NGINX using our packaged module.
