Just an update in case this happens to someone else. Despite purging the Django cache with the Django-admin command the counts still did not update. Only after I went to the cache folder itself (specified in the settings.ini file) and deleted the files manually did things finally work again. Some of the files were lingering and didn’t purge for some odd reason. All good now. Hope this helps.

We use the command: purge_django_cache and it updates the page count. I usually run it after every ingest.

I know I've tackled this before in the distant past but I can't remember how. I'm trying to update the "total_page_count" variable to reflect the most recent batch ingests on this site:


Can't seem to get it to work. Tried restarting apache and the server, setting the django cache to 1, apache cache to 1, tracing back the variable (index.page_count()), a few core commands, etc. It still says there are 13K pages when in fact there are 330K. What am I missing here?
