Fixes ActiveSupport::Cache::FileStore#cleanup bug which prevented it from removing expired entries #30789



Copy link

@erichmachado erichmachado commented Oct 3, 2017


ActiveSupport::Cache::FileStore#cleanup implementation was silently failing to remove expired entries from the cache storage directory. This was due to the implementation itself failing to read the entry properly during the cleanup call:

def cleanup(options = nil)
  options = merged_options(options)
  search_dir(cache_path) do |fname|
    key = file_path_key(fname)
    entry = read_entry(key, options)
    delete_entry(key, options) if entry && entry.expired?

The read_entry method here should receive the actual fname instead of key to retrieve this entry, otherwise it will just return nil and never calls delete_entry.

This was already reported here.
