In the Cache Settings section on my cPanel it says that nginx is unavailable and gives no option to enable or disable.
My hosting company ran some commands on the VPS and showed me that nginx was running ok. They said to come here to ask for help as to why the Cache Settings section isn’t showing correct.
Thanks
Colin.

Hey there! The best way to tell what Nginx package is installed would be to run this command on the machine:

rpm -qa | grep nginx

The cPanel provided version, which is still in the experimental release stage, is provided by the ea4-experimental package, as outlined in his post:

https://blog.cpanel.com/brace-yourselves-nginx-is-coming/

so if you are using another version of Nginx that isn't something that would work well with the provided cPanel tools. It's also important to remember that this software in general is still experimental, although we'll be happy to check things on our side if it is not working as expected.

The current version that is available through the EasyApache tools is ea-nginx, so it seems like your system has the plugin provided by the following site:

https://cpnginx.com/

Unfortunately since that isn't created by us, I can't say for sure how it will interact with other areas of the cPanel system. There is a support URL on that page, so you might want to try contacting them directly to see if they could get you more specific details about that plugin working with caching tools.
