What does this mean: Successfully cleared whole cache

Hi, I’m getting this lines at log
Does this log mean that the entire cache for the website on Cloudflare has been cleared? If so, how can we determine what triggered this action?

That appears to be what that log suggests, yes.

how can we determine what triggered this action?

I would start by seeing where the log is coming from - it looks like something you have is making that request. Some specific application? Where in your stack is that reported from?

We see those lines appearing in /var/log/phpfpm/php_errors.log. They appear at 5:00 am, 7:00 am, 9:00 am… approximately every 2 hours.

Thanks for the feedback

Something on your server is making these requests.

You would need to check in your codebase, or with your technical/development team for when and how these are triggering, and if they’re intentional, or their purpose, etc.
