Nginx delay invalid parameter


I have this in /etc/nginx/conf.d/gessin.conf

server {
        listen       80 ;
        listen       [::]:80 ;
        root /home/developer/www/admin;
        client_body_timeout 5s;
        client_header_timeout 5s;
        index index.php index.html index.htm;
    location / {
      try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
    location ~ \.php$ {
            limit_req zone=http burst=20 delay=8;
            limit_conn addr 10;
            try_files $uri =404;
            fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php-fpm/php-fpm.sock;
            fastcgi_index index.php;
            fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
            include fastcgi_params;

But nginx complains that delay is not a correct parameter:

[root@dmz-1 developer]# nginx -c /etc/nginx/nginx.conf -t
nginx: [emerg] invalid parameter "delay=8" in /etc/nginx/conf.d/gessin.conf:14
nginx: configuration file /etc/nginx/nginx.conf test failed

Best Answer

As per Richard Smith's comment, the version is wrong. The delay option is valido only for nginx > 1.15.7

yum updtate nginx
