How do I activate/enable the caches in Magento manually?

I disactivated/disabled the caches with the Admin panel, to add some modifications to my website. Unfortunately when I finished, I forgot to reactivate the caches.
Now my website is no more reachable. My browser says that it is due to the fact that the caches are disabled/refused.

Isn't it possible to activate the caches manually? Maybe by modifying the value of rows in a table of the database?

Thanks a lot for your help and answers.

Hello Spearo,

The Magento cache settings are not kept in the database. Without specific information, the closest I could find was that you will need to modify/delete the a file named /app/etc/use_cache.ser

This information link came from the Magento site itself. It advised on deleting the cache file. You may alternatively just rename it as a safety precaution.

I hope this resolves your issue. If you have any more questions or information specific to the issue please leave a comment below so we can further assist you.

Best Regards,
