There are two ways to clear your cache in WordPress:
- Using a caching plugin
There are many caching plugins available for WordPress, such as W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache, and WP Rocket. These plugins make it easy to clear your cache with just a few clicks.
To clear your cache using a plugin, follow these steps:
- Install and activate the caching plugin of your choice.
- Go to the plugin’s settings page.
- Find the option to clear the cache.
- Click the “Clear Cache” button.
- Clearing the cache manually
If you don’t want to use a caching plugin, you can clear your cache manually. To do this, follow these steps:
- Log in to your WordPress dashboard.
- Go to Settings > Performance.
- Click the Clear Cache button.
This will clear your cache for all pages and posts on your site.
Note: If you’re using a caching plugin, you may need to clear the cache from the plugin’s settings page instead of from the WordPress dashboard.
Why do I need to clear my cache?
There are a few reasons why you might need to clear your cache in WordPress:
- After making changes to your site
If you make changes to your site, such as updating your theme or plugins, you may need to clear your cache to see the changes.
- If you’re experiencing performance issues
If your site is running slowly, clearing your cache can sometimes help to improve performance.
- If you’re seeing cached content
If you’re seeing old or cached content on your site, clearing your cache can help to fix the issue.
How often should I clear my cache?
The frequency with which you need to clear your cache will depend on your site and how often you make changes to it. However, it’s a good idea to clear your cache at least once a week.
