Purging a file store actually purges nothing

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Blocker
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 2.4

      1. Open Site administration ► Plugins ► Caching ► Configuration
      2. Go to the dataroot filesystem and take note of the time of the folders/files representing the cache e.g. # cd $CFG->cachedir/cache/cachestore_file/default_application && ls -lh */
      3. Purge the Default file store for application caches
      4. Check the file time: it should return the current time
      5. Create a new file store (Add instance at the end of the row identified by column Plugin = File cache) in a Cache path really different from the default one e.g. /tmp/moodle-master-cache-file1
      6. Edit the Language string cache mapping and point it to the new file store
      7. Again: take note of the time of the cached files, wait at least 1 minute (to take advantage of reading the time with ls -lh), purge the new file store and re-check the time of the files
