Constants

Docket Cache uses constants variable as main configuration methods.
Updated: 08-Mar-2023 | v22.07.04
Constants are like variables except that once they are defined they cannot be changed or undefined. To change the behaviour of Docket Cache, the following PHP constants can be defined in your wp-config.php file.
Docket Cache load the configuration by calling Constan::register_default() method that can be found in file includes/src/Constans.php. Some constant marks as @private and for internal use, changing it may result in unpredictable behaviour.

DOCKET_CACHE_MAXTTL

Default object lifespan in seconds.
Only numbers between 86400 and 2419200 are allowed. Default: 345600 (4 days)
define('DOCKET_CACHE_MAXTTL', 345600);
If there is no expire time was set to object or set to 0, Docket Cache will use this setting as an expiration time.
This setting does not apply to cache groups below if the value of seconds is lower than the predefined seconds.

DOCKET_CACHE_MAXSIZE

Set the maximum size of the object data in bytes, which can be store in a cache file.
Only size between 1048576 (1MB) and 10485760 (10MB) are allowed. Default: 3145728 (3MB)
define('DOCKET_CACHE_MAXSIZE', 3145728);

Example of object data:

'schedule' => 'twicedaily',
'args' => [],
'interval' => 43200,
],
],
],
