Hi,

I'm probably missing something obvious, but didn't find any examples out there. So I have a Django app and would like to use nginx to cache the responses to decrease the load on Django itself.

Is it possible to do this on Webfaction? If yes how, if not what other similar option do I have?

Thanks, Balint

This isn't possible using our nginx instances. It may be something we add in the future.

For now you could either build your own instance of nginx and configure it's cache or you can use your Django application's Apache instance do the caching.

Thanks for the answer. I'm fine with using Apache, but can't see any caching mods installed. Do I have to build mod_cache manually?

Yes. Extra modules will have to be built manually and added to your Apache instance.
