I have tried almost every cache plugin for WordPress during 10 years, many of them are very lightweight (which I prefer) such as WP Super Cache, Fastest Cache, Comet Cache, Cache Enabler... they are all great and work well. (Other cache plugins like WP Rocket, Swift Performance, W3 Total Cache, Litespeed LS cache, Nitropack are too bloated imo.) After some years I learned that actually if you have Nginx servers, and enable the FastCGI cache... you don't need to use any "old-fashioned" cache plugins! Immediately I was addicted to this setup... launch $5 LEMP cloud server and enable FastCGI cache in my Nginx config, and fantastic performance with no more worrying about bloated plugins and errors with cache plugins. The problem? How to clear my Nginx cache? I was deleting the cache folder in my SSH window every time and super annoying. I discovered the EasyEngine plugin called Nginx Helper, it was fantastic! However, some of the settings did not require in my situation so I looked more. After that I finally found Mr. Till's Nginx Cache plugin and very lightweight... This plugin is what I use now, very easy and no bloat. I can use this plugin for all LEMP script like WordOps, SlickStack, and Webinoly and everything in my entire server is free open source software. Great work! And your Redis Cache plugin too, a perfect match.

For those who do not know, it is necessary to enter linux to empty the cache with a command. This plugin, which looks silly, saves a lot of time. Thank you!

Can't believe my eyes! I have been using SSH to flush my cache manually each time I update anything on my site, tried several plugins, tried to recompile NGINX a bunch of times as well, no success (and unable to afford NGINX Plus) for almost a year! Installed your plugin today, August 12, 2020, on the latest Wordpress 5.5 and it works!!!!!!!! Thank you so very much 🤩

Does one thing and does it well. Nice work! This allows me to simply use fastcgi_cache + this plugin and be done with it, versus much larger plugins like WP Super Cache.
