Do the following:

1. stop your Nimble instance:
sudo service nimble stop

2. remove existing cache
rm -rf /var/cache/nimble/*

3. start your Nimble instance:
sudo service nimble start

hi Yury, you mentioned Linux platform, How to clear cache in Windows Platform?

1. stop your Nimble instance (stop service from command line using "net stop NimbleStreamer" or use service management GUI)
2. remove existing cache
delete cache folder in Nimble installation directory (%PROGRAMFILES%\Nimble Streamer\cache by default)
3. start your Nimble instance ("net start NimbleStreamer" or use service management GUI)

Cheers Max,

This begged few more questions!
Can you as well create FAQ section based on posts in forums so to create a documentation? As unlike in Blog, I dont find a SEARCH feature in forums.

Also, is the cache FOLER to be deleted or the contents inside cache folder?

and third, can this cache folder be customized? means giving alternative path to it? As in windows platform, the system automatically distributes page file collectively where it finds most of the allocated space (when manually set in advanced settings), so rather than using the drive with O/S, an empty drive can be used as Cache/Page files. So I was hoping if using WMSPanel this can be set as well?
