Clear the Akeneo cache

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

After making changes to Akeneo, it is highly recommended to clear the cache to avoid problems. Run the following commands depending on your installation type:

  • Change to the Akeneo directory:

    NOTE: Depending on your installation type, the Akeneo directory is located in one of the following locations:

    • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): /opt/bitnami/akeneo
    • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): /opt/bitnami/apps/akeneo/htdocs
  • Clear the Akeneo cache using the command line console tool:

    $ php bin/console cache:clear –no-warmup –env=prod

  • If you are running the previous command with root privileges, apply read, write and execute permissions (recursive) to the cache folder after clearing the cache:

    $ sudo chmod -R 775 var/cache
