Magento 2: cache clean vs cache flush

Subscribe to my newsletter and never miss my upcoming articles

During the development we constantly use the Magento feature to clean or flush the cache, but do you know the difference? Check out this difference based on DevDoc.

php bin/magento cache:clean

Cleaning a cache type deletes all items from enabled Magento cache types only. In other words, this option does not affect other processes or applications because it cleans only the cache that Magento uses.

Disabled cache types are not cleaned.

php bin/magento cache:flush

Flushing a cache type purges the cache storage, which might affect other processes applications that are using the same storage.

Reference: DevDocs Manage the cache
