    Your host should be able to set that cron job to run and clear the table weekly, and most importantly for free.

    Thinking about buying this. But with Glenn no longer offering install and customer support...im skeptical. What was the process for install? Does it require any work in the cpanel?

    glennrocksvb It seems your fetchapp download is broken. Downloads are not sent after successful payment.

    Bought.
    It really helps.
    Thank you!

    Some information:

    This mod helps me to fix some error on my forum., it happens on this forum too.

    The search module, at some point in time when clicking on a link (recent posts) produced an error - the search time is expired.

    Earlier, clearing the cache once a day solved this problem, now cleaning is performed automatically by this mod once an hour, that completely solves this trouble.

    Thanks again!

We saw some good reviews on this mod and decided to give it a shot. Best decision we could have made. No more memory issues. No more notices from the new hosting company.

    I am a happy camper, as is is my forum. I don't think anyone can go wrong using this mod. It's a huge asset for a very small price. FWIW
    Thanks for the nice review of this mod,
    -merzi! I'm glad this mod helps your forum!

    It doesn't matter if you use Memcache or not. If you find yourself consistently clearing system cache manually for whatever reason, then you might need this mod.

    Yes, it is run using the existing Scheduled Tasks system.

    Hello Glenn,

    Do I need this mod if I use Memcache?

    Is it automatically set for a regular time with no interference from me or admins?

    Thanx

    It has been a huge benefit for my forum. Cleared up the issues we had prior. I could not be more pleased with Clear System Cache.

    I have a site on a dedicated VPS and notice a dramatic improvement to memory size whenever I clear system cache manually, about 8% when I clear it weekly.

    Hi - I realize this is a very late reply, but since no one else 'answered' your question, I'll give it a shot.

    I don't think there is one right answer as to how often to clear the cache. Each forum is an entity unto itself, as is the hosting company, and the cache builds up accordingly. On one host we were having to clear the cache daily to keep the place working well. We moved to another hosting company and had to set up to clear the cache every hour.

    IMO, the very best answer as to how often to clear the cache is, as often as you need to in order to keep your forum running optimally.
