Configure the Static Content Cache

The web server caches static content assets, such as images, icons, and CSS style sheets, in two ways. The global static cache holds content shared among sites at the organization level, and site-specific static caches hold content belonging to private site libraries.

  1. Select Administration > Sites > Manage Sites.
    • To configure the global cache for shared static content, click Global Static Cache.
    • To configure the static cache for a site (including the Business Manager site), click the site, then click the Cache tab.
  2. Select the instance type.
  3. Enter the Time To Live in seconds. The web server holds data for the TTL before requesting it again from the application server.
    • The default is 30 days (2,592,000 seconds).
    • For production instances, the minimum TTL is 24 hours (86,400 seconds).
    • To disable caching of static files, enter 0.
    • Setting the TTL affects both the static content and page caches.
