Recommendations:

1. Upgrading to a new version:

      • When a new version of ProcessMaker is updated it’s recommended to clean the cache to assure the correct apply of the new functionality. The clean cache option is available in Configuration / settings / clear compiled cache option. Another way to clean the compiled files is by manually deleting the compiled folder licated in “…/processmaker/shared/compiled”.

2. Upgrading a new language:

      • When a new language is imported, it is strongly recommended to clean and build cache to assure labels to be applied correctly. The build cache option is available in Configuration / settings/ Cases Cache List Builder.
      • If there’s a Proxy installed in your company and the web cache is enabled, please delete the cache to reflect the last changes. Consult your network administrator to do this change.
