How to Clear Your Browser Cache

Many common website loading errors can be solved with a very simple and often forgotten solution: clearing your browser's cache on your local machine.

Try clearing your browser's cache if you experience any of the following:

  • Your website does not display correctly; i.e., missing images, erroneous CSS, improper redirects.
  • Your site shows the wrong domain or does not display at all after a DNS change.
  • Your site displays errors.
  • Your site only partially loads.
  • Your session files are not saved correctly.
  • You experience repeated wp-admin authentication problems when using the verified, correct login credentials.
  • You recently updated your site, but your new content will not display.

If you have just migrated your site and clearing your browser cache does not resolve these errors, this tutorial might offer more solutions.
