Clearing the cache in WordPress can be done in a few different ways, depending on the caching method you are using:
- Using a caching plugin: If you are using a caching plugin like WP Super Cache or W3 Total Cache, you can clear the cache from the plugin’s settings page. This page can typically be found by going to Settings > [Plugin Name] in the WordPress admin dashboard.
- Using a CDN: If you are using a Content Delivery Network (CDN) like Cloudflare, you can clear the cache by going to the CDN’s settings page and purging the cache.
- Manually deleting the cache: If you are not using a caching plugin or CDN, you can manually delete the cache by deleting the cache files from the cache folder in your website’s root directory.
- Using a hosting service: Some hosting providers offer their own caching service like caching the website on the server-side, in this case, you should check your hosting provider’s documentation to find out how to clear the cache.
It’s important to note that clearing the cache may cause a temporary decrease in website performance as the site needs to rebuild the cache. However, it is a necessary step if you have made changes to your website that are not being reflected on the front end.
