  2. From the System tab, click Cache Management.


  3. Click Flush Magento Cache. If successful, you will see the message, “The Magento cache storage has been flushed.”

Using SSH

You must have SSH access to your server in order to use this method. If you do not have SSH access, see How to obtain SSH access from Nexcess for details.

After you log in to your server, run the following command from your site’s root folder:

php -r 'require "app/Mage.php"; Mage::app()->getCacheInstance()->flush();'
