Re: Nginx Cache | @ prefix example

May 17, 2018 12:50AM
Thank you for the response and useful information Francis incredibly helpful.

I am using the following function with this : http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_proxy_module.html#proxy_cache_background_update

proxy_cache_background_update on;




My webapp outputting the X-Accel-Expires header is PHP like so.

CODE:
<?php
echo(gmdate('D, d M Y H:i:s', 0) . ' GMT');
?>
OUTPUT:
Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT

The 0 would be replaced by the time function what is a UNIX time stamp.

CODE:
<?php
echo(gmdate('D, d M Y H:i:s', time()) . ' GMT');
?>
OUTPUT:
Thu, 17 May 2018 04:47:38 GMT

I have noticed the formate on this is different to what you provided here :
>>$ date -d @0

>>will say something corresponding to "Thu Jan 1 00:00:00 UTC 1970".

Should it look like yours or Nginx will read and understand it in the format PHP is outputting it as ?
