Registration

Close site

You may close the site to everyone except administrators. This will be useful when preparing for a database upgrade. Only administrators will be able to log in until you either reopen the site, or an upgrade is successfully completed.

Clear caches

Clearing caches will delete cached data from the server. There is no danger in clearing caches, but your site may appear slower for a while until the server and clients calculate new information and cache it.
