Clear cache as an automated job

Permalink
Hi, 1) how do I add the "clear cache" action to the "automated jobs" list? and 2) how to suggest to the core C5 developers to add "clear cache" as a default automated job?

Interesting addons. Thanks. The "Clear Cache" is what I'm looking for. However, does it do the job correctly?

I can see the only thing it does is:
Cache::flush();


While the C5 core code to clear the cache is:

public function do_clear() {
   if ($this->token->validate("clear_cache")) {
      if ($this->isPost()) {
         Cache::flush();
         $env = Environment::get();
         $env->clearOverrideCache();
         $this->redirect('/dashboard/system/optimization/clear_cache', 'cache_cleared');
      }
   } else {
      $this->set('error', array($this->token->getErrorMessage()));
   }
}


Should I call that "clearOverrideCache()" function as well?

Yeah, this add-on was built for version 5.3 so I suppose you need to update it. I would add:

Cache::flush();
$env = Environment::get();
$env->clearOverrideCache();


and see how it works.

Thanks mhawke. It seems to be working fine. Hopefully the addon author will update it. I have asked him for support regarding this matter.

Also worth pointing to some code that Jordan Lev created to use automated jobs.

Code can be seen here,

It removes files older then 1 week

I built Jordan's method and a selection of others into a free addon job, currently in the prb:

There is an associated cache filler job, also currently in the prb:
