XF 1.4 When to Rebuild Caches


Well-known member
If I make changes manually in the DB then I'll sometimes need to do a rebuild to get the correct counts, that's about it though.

Tylically only if there is a problem related to certain data showing incorrectly, or for certain tasks such as rebuilding the search index or manually triggering user group promotions.

Our site is running a bit slow and someone with a reasonable amount of knowledge in this area advised me to rebuild some caches to speed it up (among other things). So I'm not sure which ones I should be rebuilding. Any advise here? Couldn't find much information on this.

Generally, you don't need to. You won't need to in the normal running of the forum, unless there are specific values that appear incorrectly or where things are missing.
