Disable Page Caching for Development

Disabling page caching is usually only done for Sandbox instances and never for Development or Production instances.
  1. Select Administration > Sites > Manage Sites > site > Cache.
    If you are developing a Business Manager extension instead of a new site, select Administration > Sites > Manage Sites > Business Manager > Cache.
  2. On the General tab of the Manage Sites page, for Instance Type, select Sandbox/Development.
  3. For Time to live (TTL) of static content, enter 0.
  4. Deselect Enable page caching.
  5. Click Apply.
If you are working with SFRA or SiteGenesis to get started, you already have a catalog assigned to the site, so the next step is to Generate Search Indexes. If you are developing a custom site, the next step is to assign a catalog.
