How to Bypass the NGINX Cache to See Live Edits of Your Website

NGINX (Pronounced as Engine-X) is an open source, lightweight, high-performance web server or proxy server. Nginx used as a reverse proxy server for HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, IMAP, POP3 protocols, on the other hand, it is also used for servers load balancing and HTTP Cache. NGINX accelerates content and application delivery, improves security, facilitates availability and scalability for the busiest websites on the Internet.

You can get around this by telling Nginx to forward the request straight to Apache, which runs on port: 9080.

You can do this by following these steps:

Note: this will only work on static content!

1) In your browser’s toolbar, add ‘?nocache=true’ to the end of your site page’s URL

Example http://example.com/?nocache=true

2) If ‘?nocache=true’ isn’t possible given your URL’s structure you can force it to hit port 9080 by typing ‘:9080’ after your site page’s URL

Example http://example.com:9080

That’s it!
