Clear SharePoint Config Cache with PowerShell


Hi,

In my previous post, I have explained about issue “An update conflict has occurred, and you must re-try this action”. That issue occurs because of cache issues. I have already explained the manual way to clear cache. In this blog, I do same thing using the poweshell script. Following code of PowerShell will clear the cache of the server:

Add-PSSnapin -Name Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell –erroraction SilentlyContinue

Stop-Service SPTimerV4
$folders = Get-ChildItem C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\SharePoint\Config
foreach ($folder in $folders)
{
$items = Get-ChildItem $folder.FullName -Recurse
foreach ($item in $items)
{
if ($item.Name.ToLower() -eq “cache.ini”)
{
$cachefolder = $folder.FullName
}

}
}
$cachefolderitems = Get-ChildItem $cachefolder -Recurse
foreach ($cachefolderitem in $cachefolderitems)
{
if ($cachefolderitem -like “*.xml”)
{
$cachefolderitem.Delete()
}

}

$a = Get-Content  $cachefolder\cache.ini
$a  = 1
Set-Content $a -Path $cachefolder\cache.ini

read-host “Do this on all your SharePoint Servers – and THEN press ENTER”
start-Service SPTimerV4

Thanks and Happy SharePointing 🙂
