WP 4.2 and Nginx

Press Permit Core and its Pro extensions have been updated for WordPress 4.2 compatibility, user-requested features and minor bug fixes. The most exciting development is new support within PP File URL Filter for generation of Nginx rewrite rules. Control of direct file URL access requires rewrite rules at the server configuration level, but previously only Apache server was supported.

Note that whereas Press Permit Pro provides Apache solutions with nearly zero configuration, Nginx solutions are not complete out-of-the-box. Due to differences in the behavior of Nginx, server administrators will also need to implement their own script to trigger an Nginx configuration reload. Press Permit Pro members may read documentation for plugin configuration after logging in. Although development, troubleshooting and support of your main Nginx configuration and system-level scripts are outside plugin supports, questions regarding plugin configuration may be directed to the support forums on this site.
