Deprecation: #88366 - Default caching framework cache names changed

See forge#88366


TYPO3's internal Caching Framework has several caches already shipped with TYPO3 Core.

The caches have been renamed for convenience and for newcomers to overcome another "speciality" of TYPO3 which was due to legacy and integration reasons back in TYPO3 4.3 when the Caching Framework was introduced.

The following caches have been renamed:

  • cache_core => core
  • cache_hash => hash
  • cache_pages => pages
  • cache_pagesection => pagesection
  • cache_runtime => runtime
  • cache_rootline => rootline
  • cache_imagesizes => imagesizes

The caches should now be accessed via $cacheManager->getCache('core') instead of $cacheManager->getCache('cache_core') - without the cache_ prefix.

In addition, when the DatabaseBackend cache is used, the database tables do not have the cf_ prefix anymore, making it clearer for integrators and developers what the caches mean.


When accessing the cache with a "cache" prefix, a PHP E_USER_DEPRECATED error is triggered.

Affected Installations

Any TYPO3 extension using the caching framework with the cache_ prefix.


Remove the cache_ prefix from the callers code.

In addition, run through the Database Table Analyzer of the Configuration module to re-create any database tables of the Caching Framework.
