How do I clear my cache?
At Pressidium we have implemented comprehensive and highly complex adaptive caching technology which incorporates five different caching layers and highly available, load-balanced auto-scaled architecture. All this technical magic means that your sites will run amazingly fast and you will not need to use any caching plugins (like W3 Total Cache etc.), in fact we do not recommend the use of any caching plugin whatsoever.
The magic behind our caching technology will accelerate the content delivery of your site, significantly speeding-up page load times – thus keeping your visitors happy! This is accomplished by serving cached content rather than waiting for content to be computed and served by the application (dynamically generated content). In addition to this all frequently accessed static content (ie js, images, css etc) is also cached so that your site’s visitor does not have to wait for the files to be fetched from backend storage, servers and local disks.
All this magic means that your site will shoot like a rocket! although it also means that cached content may be served even when there is a new version of it available. To fix this issue, the Pressidium platform has been developed to detect changes you make to your content and clear your site’s cache automatically, so that your visitors are always seeing the latest version of your content without requiring you to take any action. Keep in mind that automated detection may delay to pick-up a change or may in rare cases not notice one, in this case, you can manually and very simply, clear your site’s cache with one click.
You can clear your site’s cache from the client portal, by going to:
- Click on the website you want to clear the cache of
- Click the big clear cache button on the right of the menu
- Confirm the clear cache action and woosh! your cache has been flushed! (cleared)
You can also clear your site’s cache from within your WordPress install.
In your WP-Admin interface:
- Click on “Pressidium” on the top left of the navigation bar
- In the main window click on the “Caching” tab
- Click the “Purge All Caches” button to flush your cache and your done!
