I have a Magento installation (1.9) that is live for 2 months now. Last week I got a server message that my disk space was low, when I checked the database table core_cache had over 5 Gb of data.
I emptied it, but it keep on growing fast every day.
I don't believe I made the choice to keep cache in the database, but what else can it be?
Is there a way to get the cache (back?) to the file system?
Thank you in advance.
If your caching is enable then please disable it and then try again.
But, caching is important for speed. So, I would like to use caching, but then as files and not in the database. I beleive this is an option on install, can you change this after installation?
Yes, we can enable it after the installation. I am telling you for debugging of the issue.
I can confirm that with chaching disabled the table does not increase. So, the table only increases with caching enabled.
If you mean session storage, you are given a choice to choose either to use the File System or Database during installation.
If you selected Database and want to change it to File System now, open your /app/etc/local.xml file and search for:-
Replace it with:-
Thank you for your advice, I checked, but in my local.xml the session save is already on files. There must be another setting/configuration that causes the table corce_cache to increase when caching is turned on.
Can this be caused by an extension? I have Amasty Full Page Cache installed, but I think it has it's own table.
