In the previous guide we showed you how to enable maintenance mode in Concrete5. This tutorial in our getting started with Concrete5 series we will guide you through the Cache & Speed settings in Concrete5. In PHP when a visitor requests a page, it is generated at that time. Caching can help you by saving the commonly accessed pages so they are ready when a visitor to your site requests them.
If you are getting a lot of traffic, and your server has to constantly generate pages, it can drive up your usage and possibly get your account suspended. Caching can help keep the load lower.
How to Work with Cache & Speed Settings:
Turn basic caching on or off. This option caches your site's blocks based on the block's setting. Concrete5 recommends turning this off when you are troubleshooting issues.
|Overrides Cache||Turn overrides caching on or off. If this is on it will cache the page, no matter what the cache setting for the block is.|
|Full Page Caching||This option allows you to cache the full web page in concrete5. If On - In all cases is selected it will cache the full page regardless of the block's cache setting.|
|Full Page Cache Rebuild||You can set how often the full page cache is rebuilt and saved. Automatic will clear cache based on concrete5's default settings. You can also set it in minutes, or manual.|
The previous guide in our Getting Started with Concrete5 series we walked you through updating Concrete5 Addons. In this tutorial, we will guide you through working with the versions option in your Concrete5 cms. Whenever you make changes to blocks in Concrete5, it is saved as a different version of your site. This allows you to roll back or restore changes you have made to your Concrete5 website.
Have you ever accidentally deleted a block only to find out that you still need it? I will show you how to take your Concrete5 website back to its previous state.
Work with Versions:
The previous tutorial discussed working with cache and speed settings in Concrete5. In this guide we will show you how to clear your cache in Concrete5. This is useful by allowing you to refresh the saved page content, and generate a new cached page.
If your Concrete 5 website is not showing the latest information on the pages, this can help update the content.
How to Clear Cache in Concrete5:
Concrete5 keeps archives, called versions of any changes you make to your website. Since these versions can accumulate over time and take up disk space, it is good to clear them out periodically.
In this tutorial we will show you how to delete these old page versions in Concrete5. Everything except the 10 most recent versions will be delete, so be sure you will not need to revert back beyond that before proceeding.
