Additionally, when caching is used with combination of CCC (Combine, Compress and Cache) sometimes there could be errors. Furthermore, if you recently transferred your PrestaShop from one location to another, you may not be able to log in because of the cache.
That’s why it is very important, when you are setting up and configuring your store to disable all cache until you are done with the configurations.

After the settings are saved, clear the cache by pressing the “Clear Cache” button and wait for the process to finish.

Furthermore, There is another field at the very bottom called “Cache”. This field is for “Memcached” type of caching. Turn that off too.
Lastly, navigate to your store files (via FTP or cPanel file manager). Find the “Var”, then “Cache” folder and inside you will find “Prod” and “dev” folders. Just delete both folders. Don’t worry if there is only a “Prod” folder, it’s ok, delete it.
