Caching Nginx Debian

Hi, I want to use cache purge module in nginx. Which nginx version and flavor has this module?

I read that nginx-naxsi package that had cache purge has been dropped in Jessie, my Debian 8 distro.

Does nginx version 1.8 have cache purge? If yes then how can I upgrade my already installed version 1.6.2 to 1.8?


  • Hi,

    Nginx 1.8 compiled with cache purge can be found on Rtcamp package repository:

    add-apt-repository ppa:rtcamp/nginx
    apt-get update && apt-get install -y nginx-custom
  • what about for Debian 8 though? Doesn't seem to work???
