Change Cache Directory

Hi ya'll. Running 2.13 and I can't get the cache directory to change. I've set

$Configuration['Cache']['Filecache']['Store'] = '/myAwesomePath/';

in config.php but I've had no luck. I also have

$Configuration['Cache']['Enabled'] = TRUE; $Configuration['Cache']['Method'] = 'filecache';

in config-defaults.php but files are still writing to /forums/cache/[Smarty/compile]

Here are the changes I've tried:
* with /myAwesomePath/Smaty/compile/
* without the above

Also, I always end up with controller_map.ini, and locale_map.ini in there as well. I want all these (as well as the smarty cache) to go to /myAwesomePath/

Am I missing something here?

    Yes you are.

    Those settings are for the (currently unused) atomic file cache. If you want to change the cache/ folder location, you must edit conf/constants.php. You're looking for:

    define('PATH_CACHE', PATH_ROOT . DS . 'cache');
