This plugin can clear the FastCGI Cache and Redis Cache. All, what‘s needed.FlyWP does a great job in managing Wordpress on your own VPS. I have a server at Hetzner Cloud for testing (FlyWP has arm64 support now). FlyWP‘s interface is simple and intuitive and they do a lot to further improve their system. They implement feature requests of their users quickly and they have done a lot of improvements the last weeks. It already works well, but I‘m sure with their attitute they will have the best Wordpress deployment system for servers soon. Their base system nginx + FastCGI + Redis outperforms my current classic webserver (apache + nginx proxy) by a few 100 percent (e.g. 1 sec instead of 3 secs load time). Keep up the good work!

Hi Thank you for FlyWP control panel and this helper plugin to clear FastCGI cache as well as Opcache. It’s better if you can add a menu on the Top bar in Wp-admin so we can quickly clear the cache instead of visiting the plugin’s settings page. Waiting for your next improve version. Best regards,
