I have successfully updated from 3.2.4 to 3.2.5-RC1, but I have a concern about the cache/ directory.

Test environment: localhost
Database: PostgreSQL 9.2.23, size: 27 GB
PHP: 7.1.22
OS: Fedora Linux release 28
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz (8 core) - desktop for testing
Memory driver in config.php: $acm_type = 'memcache';

After the full package install, I cleared the cache using php bin/phpbbcli.php cache:purge. A cache/production directory and index.htm remained, both are owned by apache.

During my previous upgrade from 3.2.3 to 3.2.4, there was no problem with localhost testing. When I installed the upgrade on my production server, I encountered a blank screen. I manually cleared the cache/ from the command line (rm -rf *) and the upgrade was successful.

My production server is CentOS Linux release 7.4.1708 (Core), which may explain why it acted differently than my localhost testing.

I have had this problem prior to 3.2.4, which is why I knew what to do. I expect this problem to repeat for 3.2.5.

I know that I have discussed this before in the phpBB general forum, but I can't find the info nor can I find it in a bug report.
