Site down after clear cache/compiled

Our new 2.1.4 site just went blank on customer side and admin side. Was running perfectly until clear cache and compiled folders. Any ideas?

*** Resolved…we had changed the cache_backend to sqlite. It ran great until clearing the cache, then choked. Reverting cache_backend to “file” brought the site back.

The issue with the sqlite caching is that the var/cache directory has to exist. For the other caching methods, it is created. So you can still use sqlite, but you might need to create the var/cache directory after clearing the cache.

The good news is that with sqlite, there is rarely a need to clear the cache.

It's a bug…

Great info, thanks tbirnseth.
