Hi Merlin,

Could you elaborate a bit around the problems with achieving this in a general way? It would be valuable to know before one tries to solve the problem as good as is possible.

Kind regards,
Fredrik Widlund

It's not really doable as far as I understand things, at least not in
a general, portable way that satisfies all backends.

What you CAN do is you use ngx_cache_purge to have the backend inform
nginx when content has changed.  This is the only method that is
general enough for any backend, but it of course requires you to do

Good luck.
