$pages->uncacheAll() method

Remove all pages from the cache (to clear memory)

This method clears all pages that ProcessWire has cached in memory, making room for more pages to be loaded. Use of this method (along with pagination) may be necessary when modifying or calculating from thousand of pages.


// calculate total dollar value of all 50000+ products in inventory
$total = 0;
$start = 0;
$limit = 500;

do {
  $products = $pages->find("template=product, start=$start, limit=$limit");
  if(!$products->count()) break;
  foreach($products as $product) {
    $total += ($product->qty * $product->price);
  $start += $limit;
  // clear cache to make room for another 500 products
} while(true);

echo "Total value of all products: $" . number_format($total);


// basic usage
$int = $pages->uncacheAll();

// usage with all arguments
$int = $pages->uncacheAll(Page $page = null, array $options = []);


page (optional)Page

Optional Page that initiated the uncacheAll

options (optional)array

Options to modify default behavior:

  • shallow (bool): By default, this method also calls $page->uncache(). To prevent that call, set this to true.

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
