How to clear Confluence plugins cache
This Knowledge Base article was written specifically for the Atlassian Server platform. Due to the Functional differences in Atlassian Cloud, the contents of this article cannot be applied to Atlassian Cloud applications.
To clear the Confluence plugins cache when it gets out of sync or corrupted.
- Shutdown Confluence
- Ensure the user running Confluence has full read/write privileges to the confluence-home directory.
- Remove the following directories
This will remove the plugin cache files only and will not permanently remove any plugins. These directories will be recreated during the next Confluence startup. However, some third-party plugins may store metadata in these directories, so we recommend creating a temporary backup of the directories.
- Start Confluence
- Confluence Home and other important directories
