Disable Caching in Drupal 8
The following procedure disables some caching features in Drupal 8 that prevent changes in the site from taking effect immediately. If Drupal is chosen as the user interface, instances where its caching might be undesirable include (1) web-based Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) applications in engineering, and (2) real-time computational reports for scientific telemetry.
1. In the Drupal folder, open the file that handles the Drupal settings.
2. Scroll to the bottom of the file and add the lines marked "Drupal8" as follows.
// BEGIN CODE
// Disable some Drupal caching.
$settings['container_yamls'] = DRUPAL_ROOT.'/sites/development.services.yml'; //Drupal8
$settings['cache']['bins']['render'] = 'cache.backend.null'; //Drupal8
$settings['cache']['bins']['dynamic_page_cache'] = 'cache.backend.null'; //Drupal8
// END CODE
3. Save the file and reload the page.
The preceding code can be found in Drupal's "sites/example.settings.local.php" file. The documentation comments in the file also suggests alternative ways to activate these cache-disabling features.
