Cachewall optimizes, protects, and improves the response time for your websites.
Commonly accessed files are cached in memory and served to visitors in a fraction of the time compared to a normal website requested. The caching policy handles the distinction between file types and unique visitors, and it is highly customized to provide support for most third-party scripts and software.
With certain applications in unique situations, this caching can introduce problems. You can adjust the settings for the software via your Control Panel.
- Log into cPanel
- Under "Software", find "Cachewall" and then click on it.
- You will be presented with a list of domains served by your account, and the corresponding settings for each of them
- Adjust the settings accordingly for the domain in question. We always suggest leaving things enabled, however using the development mode and purge cache features as appropriate.
* Please note, if you do not see these options, you may be on a package that does not allow adjustment of the caching software. Please contact the support team in these cases.
What do the settings mean?
- File Caching (Toggle On / Off)
You may disable file caching by setting this option off. When disabled, website requests to your files will always retrieve the latest version without delay.
File caching should only be disabled if necessary. Please contact our support department to report an issue if you find your website negatively impacted by caching.
- Purge Cache
Clears all cached files for the website.
This is not required if you disable File Caching or enable Development Mode; cached files are purged automatically by those features.
- Development Mode
Enable Development Mode when you are working on your website and all file caching will be disabled for 6 hours. Caching is automatically re-enabled once the time duration has passed.
