Purge Everything doesn't make changes


#1

I have problems with old cache.

I have purged everything (Wordpress W3 Total Cache plugin) but still getting old pages to be served, even in development mode

I have purged everything through plugin and Cloudflare.

PS: It works if I am logged in Wordpress as admin

Please help,
Thanks

Seeing the last line there makes me think it’s a caching plugin at the WordPress host.

Try looking if there are other caching plugins there. Maybe @sdayman can help a bit more than me!


#3

When you look at the plugins list, also check the “Must-Use” tab there. I had that and found my host had ‘helpfully’ placed their own caching plugin there :joy:


#4

Thank you for reply! I will take a look.

@domjh I can’t find ‘must-use’ tab inside plugins list.


#5

In which case, you probably don’t have any… just look in your normal plugins list. I see it here:

You are right. I do not have it. Thanks!

I do have ‘drop-ins’ however. This is probably w3 Total cache, right?


#7

Could be. You could try disabling W3 and see if it disappears.


#8

I did disable ‘W3 Total Cache’ and ‘Cloudflare’. Some of the pages are refreshed but not all, even in incognito Chrome mode.

When I click ‘empty all cache’ it says: ‘It may take up to 48 hours for the CloudFlare cache to completely rebuild on CloudFlare’s global network’

Could that be the reason?


#9

No, that is the opposite. It says that it takes a while to actually cache content at the edge. Which isn’t exactly correct, it needs to have traffic though.


#10

@matteo Thank you for the explanation.


#11

I have disabled Cloudflare for my website. It points to original server now. Old cache is still served for some of the pages. Any other ideas?

Thanks


#12

In which case, it is not a Cloudflare issue, someone on here may be able to help but you could contact your host for assistance.


#13

I have the same problem with purge everything. Like I posted before.


#14

However, if the OP here paused Cloudflare and it still showed cached content then it is not quite the same situation and appears unrelated to the Cloudflare cache.


#15

Thank you all. I will inspect further.


#16

Hey All.

I have disabled Cloudflare for this site but allow that Cloudflare continues to resolve the DNS. I purged everything again after it was disabled and today old cache is deleted.

I am not sure if this is what resolved my issue.

Thanks again!
