cache management

Hy!

I am a new in this domain, so have mercy Smiley Very Happy

I just want to ask you guys if I want to delete all the item in the Magento's 'recycle bin' cart is it enough to just select all the 7 options in the Cache Storage Management, and refresh them, or is it necesary to click also other buttons?

The web-hosting guys told me that there are a lot of log-in information remained saved from 2008 in the store's memory. I started to use the platform from 2010 so I don't understand why the things that I delete, are not deleted  Smiley Sad

 

Also, in the Index Management 2 options are not refreshed anymore:

1. Catalog URL Rewrites (from 28.09.2015)

and

2. Category Flat Data (from 19.05.2012 !!)

 

I think that maybe this is the problem that does nor let the Cache to be refreshed (deleted), but I have no idea how to fix it.

Help ! Smiley Happy

 

Thank you in advance!

Lavinia

Re: cache management

One simple way where you can remove all sessions is to go to the var/sessions directory and remove all files within it. 

 

As for the Index Management, if you can't reindex it from Magento's backend, you may want to try running reindexing using SSH:-

 

php -f shell/indexer.php reindexall

Re: cache management

can you please tell me where is the var/sessions exactly? the platform is translated in Romanian and I'm afraid to click something wrong Smiley Very Happy

Re: cache management

It's not within Magento Admin. It's within your files which you can access either with FTP or your hosting control panel.

Re: cache management

dont forget that you have to cleanup your database tables too

 

log_url

log_url_info

log_visitor

log_visitor_info

 

check if these tables are not few gig in size

truncate them
