apptainer cache clean

Clean your local Apptainer cache


This will clean your local cache (stored at $HOME/.apptainer/cache if APPTAINER_CACHEDIR is not set). By default the entire cache is cleaned, use –days and –type flags to override this behavior. Note: if you use Apptainer as root, cache will be stored in ‘/root/.apptainer/.cache’, to clean that cache, you will need to run ‘cache clean’ as root, or with ‘sudo’.
