After you publish changes to your Sitecore site, you might want to manually clear your caches after publishing the changes.

Sitecore administrators can view their Sitecore cache administration page using the URL http://{sitecoreurl}/sitecore/admin/cache.aspx. However, Sitecore cache administration pages are blocked for security purposes.

To clear your caches, Sitecore recommends restarting your Sitecore site’s web app in the Microsoft Azure portal. This action creates a fresh cache for your website’s content.

Note: Restarting your web app can cause temporary downtime for your website.

Prerequisite

Restart the web app for Azure

  1. Log in to the Azure portal.

  2. Browse to your Sitecore site’s web app.

  3. In the Overview section, click Restart.

  4. When you are prompted to restart the web app, Select Yes.
