Prestashop smarty cache clear solution

Hello and welcome to the new DailyPresta blog categorie called Tips.
Tips is short and usefull.

It’s a rather common problem when you’re changing your shop php scripts. You change your code but nothing changes in frontend output.


Solution in two steps:

1. Go to the Preferences → Performance

And set radio buttons at Smarty section as viewed:


2. Refresh your browser window and if it’s still the same delete cache manually

clean up folder contents:

  • /tools/smarty/cache
  • /tools/smarty/compile


  • /tools/smarty_v2/cache
  • /tools/smarty_v2/compile

on your server.


And remember to turn Force compile and Cache back (step 1) after work is done.
