Clearing the Application Cache

Problem

You want to clear your application cache.

Solution

Use the `php artisan cache:clear' command.

$ php artisan cache:clear

Discussion

This does two things.

  1. Cache::flush() is called to empty the cache.
  2. The app/storage/meta/services.json file is erased. This file is created as Laravel tries to optimize the loading of the service providers your application uses.

Please note that since this command deletes a file from the local file system, if you have multiple servers running your application you must execute it on each server.
