Cache Storage

Using Magento’s cache management system is an easy way to improve the performance of your site. The Cache Storage Management page shows the status of each primary cache and its associated tag. Whenever one of the caches needs to be refreshed, a notice appears at the top of the workspace to guide you through the process. There are separate buttons to flush the Magento-specific cache, and the all-inclusive cache storage. At the bottom of the page there are additional buttons to flush the catalog product images cache and JavaScript/CSS cache.

On the server, the default location for the primary Magento cache is var/cache. As an alternative to using the Cache Management tool, the contents of each cache can be manually deleted from the server.
