As @mrmad pointed out above, the default ee nginx Helper plugin no longer purges the FastCGI cache on content changes if you use @virtubox’s bash script to update to version 1.13.x . I didn’t want to use a page caching plugin like Simple Cache, so tested a couple of the other nginx purge plugins and discovered that Nginx Cache seems to work with 1.13.x. It’s simpler too - just add the location of the cache zone path to the plugin’s settings page (default is
/var/run/nginx-cache) and enable flush cache on content changes.
@portofacil - I haven’t come across any issues yet regarding PHP 7.2’s lack of mcrypt support.
