Clear the cache

First click on the menu item "Settings" on the left side menu. Then click on the left on the tab "System" and then on the area "Caches & Indices".

Shopware 6 cache via administration

Clearing the cache refers to deleting or removing cached data in a cache. A cache is a memory area where data is temporarily stored to speed up access or processing. By temporarily storing data in the cache, repeated accesses to the same data can be processed faster because they do not have to be reloaded from the slower main memory or from the hard disk.

Cache warm-up refers to the process of pre-filling the cache with frequently used data to optimize performance. By preloading data into the cache, future accesses to that data can be faster because it is already available in the cache. Warming up the cache can be useful in situations where you can predict what data will be needed in the near future. This can be done, for example, in a web application where certain data, such as frequently accessed content or database queries, are loaded into the cache in advance to improve response times for users. In summary, clearing the cache is the removal of stored data in the cache, while warming the cache is the preloading of data into the cache to optimise performance.

Variant 2: Clear the shop cache via the console

If you are not familiar with handling the server console and are not sure how to use it, we recommend that you clear the cache of your Shopware 6 shop, preferably via the administration.

In addition to the option above describing how to clear the shop cache via the administration, the clearing of the shop cache can be accomplished by using the server console. The associated CLI command is as follows: php bin/console cache:clear.

CLI commands often offer more flexibility and control over the system to more experienced users, but require knowledge of the exact syntax and purpose of each command. It is always advisable to check before clearing the cache whether this is actually necessary and what effect it may have on the system or application.

When using this variant, remember to rewarm the shop cache. The associated CLI command to warm up the cache looks like this: php bin/console cache:warmup
