    Media.Cache safe to delete?

    Hi there

    we use a Nginx Server with a CDN for our Media.

    But in our wwwroot i found, that umbraco has "Media.Cache" with tons of files.

    My question is, since Nginx cache everything, does i need it? And is there a way for auto cleanup?

    Hello, Umbraco joins all of the required assets together using the Client Dependency Framework. These are then cached and stored at App_Data\TEMP\ClientDependency.

    You can just delete these to refresh the cache.

    You can stop Umbraco from doing using the CDF by putting your application in debug mode. In your Web.config, find the compilation item and change debug to equal true:

    <compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="true" batch="false" targetFramework="4.5">

    When Umbraco is set to debug mode false, calls like this will be done which get the cached version of assets: /DependencyHandler.axd?s= When Umbraco is in debug mode, direct calls to your custom assets (and any others that are needed) will be made.

    You will also need to hard refresh your browser like you were doing before or your browser may locally cache the files too.

    Hi AddWeb

    Thank you for your reply.

    Can i also delete safe everything in App_Data\TEMP?

    I would then write a "Clear Cache" Skript, where the user can purge everything in this folder. Or an auto function which would be run 1x per week.

    Kind regards
