To disable cache in Symfony, you can set the kernel.cache_dir parameter in the config.yml or parameters.yml file to a different directory or a temporary one. Additionally, you can also remove the contents of the cache directory manually or via a command in the terminal.


Here are the steps to disable cache in Symfony:

  1. Open your Symfony project and navigate to the app/config directory.
  2. Open the config.yml or parameters.yml file in a text editor.
  3. Add or modify the kernel.cache_dir parameter to a different directory or a temporary one. For example:
1
2
parameters:
    kernel.cache_dir: "%kernel.root_dir%/temp/cache"


  1. Save the changes and close the file.
  2. Clear the cache by running the following command in the terminal:
1
php bin/console cache:clear


  1. You can also manually delete the contents of the var/cache directory in your Symfony project.


After following these steps, the cache will be disabled in Symfony and it will no longer be used to store cached data. Note that disabling the cache may affect the performance of your application, so it's recommended to re-enable it once you're done with development or debugging.
