Flushing Caches

Flushing the caches is used to ensure that the content shown is the latest version stored in the database.  While normally the cache is kept in sync with the information in the database, some abnormal situations might require flushing the cache.  Flushing the cache is normally the first troubleshooting step when content doesn’t show in the front end.
