Virtual box

I'm using Virtual Box for development purposes. There I have installed LAMP + nginx. The communication between host Windows and virtual machine is made using virtualbox common directories.

Some time ago nginx started working wrong - static files were not updated after changes (i've changed them from windows). If the browser tried to retrieve file throw nginx - it recieved old version (also with some special chars at the end of file). At the same time apache was working normal, vim and other programs inside virtualbox were showing right version of file.

The problem was solved by changing virtual machine disk controller from sata to ide. Most of all that seems to be VirtualBox bug. But at the sme time nginx was the only affected program. May be you could change the world to be better? :)

In any case, thank you for such a great program like nginx and for sharing it for free. :)

P.S. The problem is described here with logs and some other details http://habrahabr.ru/qa/15139/#reply (in russian).

IDE solved the problem only for some time.

Seems that stat return wrong timestamp of last modification. And nginx thinks that file didn't changed.

Is there any way always to read && send version of file from disk? thats bad, but can be acceptable for development virtual system.

The problem was solved by "sendfile off"; :)

Fyi, VBox shared folders are not designed for active file changes, its a poor man's file sharing method, use a real Samba share if you want to do things with active file changes.
