Class FileEngine

File Storage engine for cache. Filestorage is the slowest cache storage to read and write. However, it is good for servers that don't have other storage engine available, or have content which is not performance sensitive.

You can configure a FileEngine cache, using Cache::config()

Cake\Cache\CacheEngine uses Cake\Core\InstanceConfigTrait
Extended by Cake\Cache\Engine\FileEngine

config()source public deprecated

config( string|array|null $key = null , mixed|null $value = null , boolean $merge = true )

Properties detail

$_Filesource

protected SplFileObject|null

Instance of SplFileObject class

$_defaultConfigsource

protected array

The default config used unless overridden by runtime configuration

  • duration Specify how long items in this cache configuration last.
  • groups List of groups or 'tags' associated to every key stored in this config. handy for deleting a complete group from cache.
  • isWindows Automatically populated with whether the host is windows or not
  • lock Used by FileCache. Should files be locked before writing to them?
  • mask The mask used for created files
  • path Path to where cachefiles should be saved. Defaults to system's temp dir.
  • prefix Prepended to all entries. Good for when you need to share a keyspace with either another cache config or another application.
  • probability Probability of hitting a cache gc cleanup. Setting to 0 will disable cache::gc from ever being called automatically.
  • serialize Should cache objects be serialized first.
[
    'duration' => 3600,
    'groups' => [],
    'isWindows' => false,
    'lock' => true,
    'mask' => 0664,
    'path' => null,
    'prefix' => 'cake_',
