Hi, Just one quick question, how do you purge cache in admin panel?

At the begin page when you just entered the ACP you see the option "Purge the cache" at the bottom of the page, run it.

I must really be missing something, because I've never seen an option to purge the cache from the General tab in the ACP. Was it taken out in 3.0.4 or am I just that oblivious? The only cache purging I can perform is on the template page in the styles tab.

Are you a founder?

Because if not you won't be able to see it.

Your welcome.

You can always clear the cache manually in FTP by deleting all the files in the cache folder EXCEPT .htaccess & index.htm

It may be something to do with your host, fill out the Support Request Template Generator and start a new topic as this one is marked as Image

if you are on one of the free phpbb hosts, then this has probably been removed because you can't have any kind of access to the database.

Thanks for the delete cache via FTP hint. I made a dumb edit mistake in my overall_header file and couldn't bring the page up. This fixed it, again thanks :)
