I have been using MAGE for about 2 months now and I am a Neophyte to front and back end. I am looking for a little guidance in changing form "developer" to "production" mode. I don't use the CL, I use a combo of my FTP access and CMS.
- What is the order of changing modes?
- What cashe folders do I delete?
I changed modes by going to:
- app/etc/ and opening env.php
- then I changed MAGE_MODE' => 'developer' to MAGE_MODE' => 'production'
I have read that I have to delete the files in the cash folders.
- What should I do first? Delete cashe or change modes?
- Which folders and which files should I clear from what file paths?(In the examples I have seen the file structure is different from mine).
I have read a few articles and posts on when to use which mode but I am still a little unclear. Could you give me examples of what mode to use for what?
- Developer mode: What tasks should I do in this mode?
- Production mode: What tasks should I do in this mode?
I hope this is not too tall an order to ask. So please forgive my newness to Magento.
