I need help setting up fastcgi on our droplet, here is our configuration for /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/

when I run sudo service nginx reload, it returns ‘ok’. but when I try to test it using timestamps, its not working.

Hi @MrStarfish,

Looking at the configuration, I would assume you’ve actually followed this tutorial - .

Can you confirm you’ve followed this part as I can’t see it on the screenshots :

*Next, move the location directive that passes PHP requests to php5-fpm. Inside “location ~ .php$ { }” add the following lines.

fastcgi_cache MYAPP;
fastcgi_cache_valid 200 60m;

The “fastcgicache” directive references to the memory zone name which we specified in the “fastcgicache_path” directive and stores the cache in this area.*

Please try and configure this and see if everything will work properly then.
