To clear the cache in Drupal 7, you can do the following:

  1. Log in as an administrator on your Drupal site.
  2. Navigate to the "Administration" menu and click on "Performance."
  3. Under the "Clear cache" section, click the "Clear all caches" button.


Alternatively, you can also clear the cache by using the Drush command-line tool. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Install Drush on your server, if it is not already installed.
  2. Open a terminal or command prompt window and navigate to your Drupal installation directory.
  3. Run the following command:
1
drush cc all


This will clear all caches for your Drupal site.


It's important to note that clearing the cache can have performance implications for your site, as it will require Drupal to rebuild the cache the next time a page is accessed. As a result, you should only clear the cache when necessary, such as after making changes to your site's configuration or after deploying new code.

Alternatively, you can clear cache in Drupal 7 by following these steps:

  1. Log in as an administrator on your Drupal site.
  2. Navigate to the "Configuration" menu and click on "Performance".
  3. Under the "Caching" section, you will see different cache options such as Page cache, Block cache, CSS/JS aggregation, etc.
  4. To clear a specific cache, click on the "Clear cache" button next to the corresponding cache option.
  5. If you want to clear all caches at once, click on the "Clear all caches" button at the bottom of the page.
  6. Drupal will then clear the caches and display a confirmation message.
  7. It's important to note that clearing the cache can temporarily affect the performance of your site, as the cache will need to be rebuilt. It is recommended to clear the cache during non-peak hours or when you are making significant changes to the site.


Please note that if you have caching enabled at the server or CDN level, you may also need to clear those caches separately.
