The MultiPurge extension allows the purging of pages from multiple caches in a defined order. It was developed to allow the use-case of first purging data from a varnish cache, and then from CloudFlare.

Special PageEdit

MultiPurge adds a special page for sysops which allows purging of load.php urls.

The page can be found at Special:PurgeResources.

Only users with editinterface permissions can access this page.

The page works by requesting the actual html output of a given title, and parsing all load.php calls.

All found links can then be selected to be purged.
