A second level of caching is maintained for pages requested by site visitors. These page results are saved in a series of directories named
tmp/cache/f and each cache file has its own validity period.
These cache files are created when:
- the validity period has expired and the page is requested anew (the period is defined in the templates using the
#CACHEtag, or absent such a specific tag, through the system constant
- the editorial content in the database has been changed. SPIP relies on the registered date of last modification to determine if this has happened: (
$GLOBALS['meta']['derniere_modif']) as provided by the function
- the parameter
var_mode=calculis explicitly passed to SPIP in the URL, such as is the case when using the "Refresh this page" button on the public site when you are currently logged in.
