Hi Richard,

Great blog post. We ran into a similar issue with flushing the cache, so we wrote a plugin Cache Sniper for Nginx, which lets you purge the entire cache or single pages, and can be configured to automatically purge on update or comment. Just need to point to the cache folder to match your configuration, i.e. wp option add nginx_cache_sniper_path '/var/run/nginx-cache' --allow-root.
