WordPress Clear Cache [Step-by-Step Guide]

If you’re looking for instructions on how to clear your WordPress cache, you’ve come to the right place.

Rather than built-in caching, WordPress relies on various plugin options. This lets developers build different and competing solutions which is great, but it means that we have a few different ways to clear the cache depending on which option your site is using.

Check out the cache plugin index for solutions to clearing each caching plugin, or jump right in below:


Hint* – If you’re not sure which caching plugin your site uses, check your ‘Plugins’ page in the admin panel, and look for any of the plugins on the list (above) that might be active.

If your site is using w3 Total Cache, navigate to Performance > Dashboard in the admin panel and click the ’empty all caches’ button:

w3 cache clear


If your site is using WP Super Cache, navigate to Settings > WP Super Cache and click the ‘Delete Cache’ button to clear it:

If you’re using WPEngine, it comes with a built-in caching solution. Click on the WP Engine menu, navigate to General and click the ‘Purge All Caches’ button:
