Cache clear over Dashboard

Version 3.3


is there a possibility to clear or warm up the hole cache over the admin dashboard?

In this case, I have no access to server file system, only to the admin backend.

    There is no official way to do so that I know of. But there is the AddonCacheControllers clear() method which is in theory accessible. But it requires an authenticated POST request from a user with admin permissions. Since you are an admin, you can spoof such a request.

    The easiest way to do so is to search for a link tag with the class HiJack since such links are hijacked by the framework and sent as a POST request.

    1. Go to the plugin section
    2. Use your browsers tools to inspect the toggle slider of the plugin "Stub Content"
    3. Change the link target "/settings/plugins/all/stubcontent" to "/addoncache/clear"
    4. Use the slider to activate the plugin

    Instead of activating the plugin, the cache will be cleared **TADAAA** 😎

    This sounds really like a bad hack ;-)

    Short test says: "Addon cache cleared"

    I will try this live and come back to report.

    Thanks a lot.
