Description

In directive "fastcgi_cache_path" parameter "keys_zone" you need to set a name for the zone. Currently the name can not be a variable.

This enhancement is about that parameter "keys_zone" is accepting a variable too.

Info: directive fastcgi_cache can use a variable as parameter for the zone name. With this enhancement, the use of variables would be harmonized.

The fastcgi_cache_path defines a cache, with appropriate shared memory zone to be used to load information about cache files on disk. This is not something where variables can be used, as variables simply do not exists outside of a request.

See also this FAQ question for more information about variables.
