Purge CDN stale content using Breeze plugin

Would be good if a user can purge CDN stale content via Breeze plugin along with Varnish cache and Internal cache. Is this a possibility?


Would be nice but just so you know, Cloudflare doesn’t cache dynamic pages, only static content (eg. JS, CSS, images, etc). If you run a CMS, Cloudflare won’t cache any of your web pages.

Hi @webmaster2
It is easy to purge cache at several levels. First Breeze offers Purge All Cache option in the top menu bar under Breeze menu. This option forcefully purges all the cache at any time.
Next, if you wish to purge varnish cache at any time, go to varnish tab and click the purge button.
Note that both these options remove all content from the cache. I hope this clarifies your question

I am using the CDN provided by Cloudways and using the Breeze plugin. When I perform 'Clear all cache" from the plugin, CDN cache is not cleared. I have to login to console and clear it manually to get a fresh copy of the page. It would be good if it cleared all cache as it says - i.e. CDN, Varnish, and internal cache.

Agreed. You should be able to purge the Cloudways CDN via the Breeze plugin. There should be an option for it here:

Being able to clear CDN from Breeze is really important for workflow. So need this and we know Cloudways always listens to its customers. :slight_smile:

Really really need this feature. Thanks!

I am having the same issue … if I use Cloudways CDN, I can’t just purge the CDN with Breeze. Since these are both Cloudways products, there should be a way to seamlessly connect them, so we don’t have to waste time logging into Clouways everytime we need to purge the CDN. I can’t even update simple styles without haveing to log into the dashboard to clear the CDN. It slows me down a lot.

Hi Michael,

This request has been noted and forwarded to Breeze team. I will update this thread as soon as I receive a response.

I recommend that you keep the Auto Purge Varnish option enabled at all times. You can also manually purge Varnish.
By default, Breeze WordPress Cache Plugin purges internal cache after one day (you can change this value in Basic Options).

If you want to manually purge the plugin’s internal or varnish cache, you can do so from the Breeze tab in the top bar.


Hi Lewis,

I think we are concerned about purging the stale CloudwaysCDN and not the Varnish cache. Varnish and Internal Cache can be purged using the Breeze plugin but not the stale Cloudways CDN. For this, one need to login to Cloudways Control central and purge it for individual application.

It would be really helpful if we can do this through the Breeze plugin and ll products are owned and managed by Cloudways.
