Clear Cache in Magento 2

The cache is the biggest issue when you develop so you need to know all the possible ways of cleaning it.
There are 3 way to clean the cache (similar to Magento 1):

  • From the backend (Admin):

  • Through command-line (CLI) tool:
    # in your Magento root folder
    # the php from the beginning of the line can be omitted 
    # -- cache:clean deletes the cache storage
    php bin/magento cache:clean 
    # -- cache:flush will wipe out everything 
    php bin/magento cache:flush
  • Manually removing the cache files:
    # from magento root directory in command line run the command
    rm -rf var/cache/*

You can also check the cache status

First of all, let show cache status by the following command line:

php bin/magento cache:status
