Cache Management

Cache Management

When making certain changes to Magento, such as modifying code files, it is necessary to clear the cache in order for the changes to become visible.

There are two ways to clear the cache in Magento:

Through the Magento Admin Panel

  1. Log in to your Admin Panel account
  2. Go to the System -> Cache Management section
  3. Click on the Flush Magento Cache button

Using SSH/FTP or the cPanel File Manager
Delete the contents of the var/cache/ folder using the following SSH command (MUST be executed from your Magento base directory):
rm -rf var/cache/*
Delete the folder var/cache/ through your FTP client or using the cPanel File Manager.

Index Management

Index Management

  1. Log in to Magento administrator control panel.
  2. Go To System > Index Management.
  3. On the left side is a list of categories that can be reindexed. Select the categories to reindex. If you want to run a reindex for all of the products, click “Select All”.
  4. From the Actions drop-down menu, select Reindex Data and then click Submit.
  5. Depending on how many categories, and the amount of information that needs to be reindexed, this could take a few minutes, or hours.
