Guys I need to set my favicon.ico to expire every week in my nginx server block, so how can I do that?
P.S. I'm on centos 7 LEMP stack

A pretty common approach is to set an expires time on all static assets:

location ~* \.(js|css|png|jpg|jpeg|gif|ico)$ {
    expires 24hr;

If you want to just set it for the favicon, you can uses something like:

location = /favicon.ico {
    expires 24hr;

For more info, check out the documentation on the Nginx headers module.
