Productive Mode for OXID Shop

Fresh adopters of the OXID e-Commerce software will notice that the system is set to Productive Mode checked off.  Many wonder what this setting actually does.

This setting deletes some of the temporary cache files used by the SMARTY template system stored in the /tmp/ folder on a regular basiss.  It makes sense to keep this setting unchecked during development stages of the shop.  If Productive Mode is checked on, the temporary files are preserved, which increases shop performance/speed.
Note that I’ve said only some of the temporary cache files are emptied if this setting is off.  Indeed many of the tmp files are preserved, which cause unexpected behaviour during the development stages and cause panic to developers sometimes.  If you are an active developer, use this module from Musterdenker for emptying all cache files from /tmp during the whole development phase.
