This is a new install of 1.6.2 on linux dedi (centOS).  I have the following
in my nginx.conf file:

fastcgi_cache_path /dev/nginx-cache levels=1:2 keys_zone=WORDPRESS:10m
max_size=1024m inactive=60m;

When testing the configurations (nginx -t), I get the following error

nginx: [emerg] "fastcgi_cache_path" directive is not allowed here in

I have reviewed many suggested configurations and all place the
fast_cache_path statement, in some similar form, in nginx.conf.  Why is this
consistently failing?  I thank everyone in advance for their assistance.
