Clear Cache Scheduled Task by BOP5

vB Version: 5.4.x Rating: (4 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 13
Released: 30 Jan 2019 Last Update: Never Downloads: 56
Not Supported Re-usable Code  

The purpose of this file is to clear the cache on a regular basis. Most sites will not need this. Do not attempt to install it unless you have very good reason to.

To use/install

1) Download file, extract bop5_clearcache.php file and upload it to the /core/admincp/ folder.

2) Go to the Admin CP -> Scheduled Tasks -> Add New Scheduled Task

3) Fill out the form as the following:

Varname: vbcacheclean
Day of the week: *
Day of the month: *
Hour: 20
Minute: 10 - - - - -
Active: Yes
Log Entries: No

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Product: vBulletin
vBulletin Default: Yes

(Leave unmentioned fields blank or as is)


Of course you can change the hour and minute to your needs, this example will run once a day around 20:10 (or 8:10PM.) You should set this to run at a relatively busy time for the forum, so it doesn't get missed, but not necessarily the busiest time.

This will erase it once a day. You can adjust the settings above to run it more often, such as once an hour by setting Hour to * instead of a set number.

I hope this helps, I know some people have asked for this, even though it should not be needed it sometimes is.

I have installed the files bop5_clearcache.php in the folder /core/admincp/ as specified

In the Scheduled Task the path "./admincp/bop5_clearcache.php" is correct?

If i click in the "Viewing scheduled operation logs" i don't see any execution of the files

The mod it doesn't seem to work
