Best way to empty nginx cache


#1

Hi all,

what is the best and quickest way to empty the whole cache (set via
proxy_cache_path) ?

I’m developing an small web site which allow my customers to empty
their site cache.

I would do:
1- find /path/to/cache -type f -exec rm {};
2- gracefull reload nginx to clear the shared memory used to handle
cache

what do you think ?

Only 1st item is enough. Reload does not clear shared memory.
