SSH command to clear website cache when updates are made

Posted on 2008-06-20
Last Modified: 2013-11-19
I have a site using Ruby on Rails. It has it's own administrator console to make changes to the website when needed. When I make the changes and confirm they do not show up on the site itself. I used to have to login to ssh and run a command to clear the cache so the site would update but I haven't done it in so long I forgot the command.

Thanks in advance!

/etc/init.d/httpd restart ?
/etc/init.d/squid stop; /bin/rm /var/spool/squid/swap.state; /etc/init.d/squid start ?

No, it wasn't either of those....this is driving me nuts. It's more along the lines of a cache clearing command. Even restarting the entire server doesn't update it.
