Every single time I am trying to upload a few photos, the Cache says "One or more of the Cache Types are invalidated: Blocks HTML output. Click here to go to Cache Management and refresh cache types." I know that you can go in and select all to refresh or flush, but if I try to go to the cache management page or any page in the website, a white page saying "This page isn’t working" pops up until I clear the cache through cpanel FTP or wait for a good few minutes to reload the page. Is there any solution to this?

  • you can do cache management programmatically

    include 'app/Mage.php';
    ini_set('display_errors', 1);


    echo "cleared cache";

  • you have to create a new file for this ex: clearcache.php in browser you have to run website.com/clearcache.php

Answering the question assuming you are using Magento 1.

Check function invalidateType in file app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Cache.php

This function marks the cache as invalidated. You can hook the code of this function to clean the cache instead of marking it as invalidated.

I hope it will help.
