Eclipse open-source website coding software typically caches specific pages to memory. This may cause problems when you update your work, because Eclipse displays an older version of the page rather than the latest version. You can easily delete old cached files stored on the system by directly editing Eclipse's preferences.


Step 1

Open Eclipse and launch the Preferences window.
