Summary

This article provides the steps to clear the EdgeCast CDN cache.

Steps

You can clear the EdgeCast CDN caches in two ways:

VIA the GUI

  1. Login to the Media Control Center for your site at https://my.edgecast.com
  2. Navigate to the appropriate caching tab (HTTP Large, HTTP Small, etc.)
  3. Select the "Purge/Load" link.
  4. Choose the URL for which you wish to purge the cache and click Purge.

Programmatically

There are SOAP and REST API's available if you would like to utilize them to be able to programmatically clear the cache (for instance, clearing the cache automatically after publishing new content as part of your publishing loop). You may review the API guides under: https://my.edgecast.com/support/docs/.  Also see the KB on Purging EdgeCast CDN Content Using the REST API.
