WP Rocket is a very popular caching plugin for WordPress websites. If you are a beginner to the plugin and don’t know how to clear caches in the plugin, you can have a look at this article to get a complete idea about clearing different types of caches in WP Rocket.
Clearing cache in WP Rocket
Like many other caching plugins, WP Rocket simply adds an item to the top bar of your WordPress website. Just hovering over the WP Rocket menu item in the admin bar will bring many functions including clearing the cache. Here is how it looks like.
There you can find different options such as Clear Cache, Purge OPcache, etc. to clear your website caches. Clear cache refers to clearing all your website caches that have been generated over time. Purge OPcache option will clear the PHP OPcache files on your server. So, whenever you made some significant changes to the code or design of your website, just clicking on the Clear Cache, the link will clear all your website caches and deliver fresh pages thus generating new caches.
If you want to go the hard way, there is one more way you can clear the WP Rocket cache from the WordPress backend. It is by visiting the settings pages of the WP Rocket from Settings > WP Rocket section on the left sidebar in your backend.
You will see such a section on the right where there are several buttons just like on the menu. You can use them to clear the caches as well as Regenerate Critical CSS files that have been generated by the plugin. If you don’t know, Critical CSS files should be regenerated once you made any design changes to your website. If not, sometimes, you may see broken sections or designs.
