    Cache items in App_Data directory

    As far as I can tell, App_Data is where a lot of cached objects live once they've been generated.

    I've just transferred a site (FTP/SQL) from my development environment to a production server. What can/should I remove from this directory on the remote machine in order to 'flush' the cache and force the server to rebuild the site when pages are requested? I'm having issues with old versions of content being displayed, despite updates to the database and filesystem.

    The Umbraco.config file is the cache of the entire site.  It will regenerate this file after its deleted with your changes.

    Are there any more files that files/folders that we could "clean up"?

    I can't think of anything else in App_Data that would clear out the cache, but you can delete /Temp folder (it will be recreated) and delete any files under the /preview (these are cached versions of pages viewed in preview mode).
