Lag in cache? Difference between http and https sites


  • Question

I notice that sometimes changes that are made on a site while in https:// will not show up for people using http (which I would expect, though only for a short while). It can sometimes take a day or two before changes flush through, which I'm pretty sure is not by design.

Sometimes, even authenticated users will not see the same changes that the person making the change sees.

Will manually flushing the Drupal cache have any effect downstream on the other cache layers?


I have found that manually flushing the cache does help, especially when making changes in theme settings, block configuration, and CSS.
