Do you want to learn how to clear WordPress cache? If yes, then this post is for you. The web browser, hosting server as well as caching plugins can serve cached content that make it hard to see changes you make to your website. Clearing the WordPress cache is thus the first step in troubleshooting. But how do you go about this?
Clear browser cache
Each browser is different. If you are using Google Chrome, you need to click the menu icon and go to More Tools>>Clear Browsing Data. Ensure images and files options have been checked then click ‘Clear browsing data’. With Mozilla Firefox, you need to click the menu button at the top right then go to Options>>Privacy & Security then scroll down to Cookies and Site Data then click on ‘Clear’.
Clear cache in WordPress plugin
If you use a caching plugin, you will have to clear the plugin cache. You can do this from the plugin’s settings page. If you are using WP Rocket, for example, you need to go to Settings>>WP Rocket page and click ‘Clear Cache’. The process is similar for most caching plugins.
Clear cache on WP Engine
If you use this managed WordPress hosting provider, then you will have to clear cache in it. To clear cache, click the WP Engine menu from the admin bar and from ‘General’ settings click on the ‘purge all caches’ button.
Clear Bluehost cache
This is without any doubt the best WordPress hosting company. They offer built-in caching solution that will improve your website’s performance and speed instantly. You will be able to clear the Bluehost cache from the WordPress admin area. Login to your WordPress admin area and from the top menu click on ‘Caching’ button then click on ‘Purge All’ from the drop down menu.
Clear Sucuri cache
If you use the Sucuri WordPress firewall, then you need to clear the cache from it too. To do this go to Sucuri>>WAF menu in the WordPress admin area. Locate ‘Clear Cache’ and hit on that button to clear cache.
To clear WordPress cache, you have to clear cache from every plugin that uses cache. If you moved your website recently, you may have to clear the DNS cache too.
