I am not able to flush the cache properly. I am using Magento 2.1.4, Redis and Varnish.

I have tried flushing the cache in the Magento admin: Admin > System > Cache Management > Flush Cache Storage/Flush Magento Cache and disabled all the caches.

I have purged my Varnish cache for my site: curl –X PURGE http ://www.mysit e.com/.

I have purged the Redis cache and FPC:

telnet redisxx.x xxxx
select 1

Changed the mode to developer: php-7.0 bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer (from default)

Ran commands: php-7.0 bin/magento setup:upgrade, php-7.0 bin/magento setup:di:compile and php-7.0 bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy.

I have removed the content of the pub/static/* except the .htaccess file but still have the problem.

I have cleared my browser cache, used incognito mode, different browser and even a different machine.

Changes done in the code are not showing. I have even deleted a part of my site to see if that works but still nothing. If there anything else I can do? Why is the caching not flushing?

Whitelisting my IP in in the DOS filter fixed this issue. There was a block on the load balancer.


Try renaming you var folder to something else. Most of the cache files are located either there or pub/static. Also try flushing cache from cli as below ;

php bin/magento cache:flush
