By default Sitefinity CMS uses an InMemory ouput cache provider. To configure Sitefinity CMS to use distributed output cache you need to select one of the supported distributed cache providers and configure the selected provider
Sitefinity CMS can be configured to store output cache in-memory (default) or in a distributed cache data store. This behavior is controlled by the Cache Provider property of the Sitefinity CMS Global output cache settings. It is available under Administration » Settings » Advanced » System » Output Cache Settings. The supported values for the Cache Provider property are:
IMPORTANT: When using SQLServer as the Sitefinity CMS output cache data store, the expired output cache items are not removed from the specified database.
NOTE: When using DynamoDB as the Sitefinity CMS output cache data store, the supported maximum size of an output cache item is 400 KB. Items larger than 400 KB will not be persisted in output cache and will be recorded in the Sitefinity CMS Error.log. For more information see Limits in DynamoDB.
NOTE: ServiceStack version 188.8.131.52 and above does not support Memcached.
When selecting a Cache Provider value different that InMemory you are configuring Sitefinity CMS to use a centralized output cache data store. You need to configure the selected cache provider, so it can connect to the desired data store. You do that by going to Administration » Settings » Advanced » System » Output Cache Settings » CacheProviders and selecting the desired distributed cache provider settings you want to configure.
To use SQLServer as your output cache storage you specify a valid connection string pointing to your desired SQL server instance. Sitefinity CMS supports standard ADO.NET connection string format, for example: Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername; Password=myPassword;
Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername; Password=myPassword;
NOTE: If you do not specify a connection string, Sitefinity CMS will use the default one pointing to the Sitefinity CMS database.
To use Redis as your output cache storage you need to specify a valid Redis connection string, for example: yq2YLjsdlf34iwushrgesdeirkfs034jsdls493firstname.lastname@example.org?ssl=true
NOTE: If you do not specify a connection string, Sitefinity CMS will use the one configured in LoadBalancing Redis settings. For more information see: Configure Azure Redis cache
To use AWS DynamoDB as your output cache storage you need to specify a valid AccessKey, SecretKey and your AWS Region.
