On my production webserver containing multiple silverstripe installations, after adding and picking a cache backend, I get php errors where extensions from one site are used on another, causing errors because the extensions aren't found. clearly the caches are getting mixed up.

I'm using the following code in /mysite/config.php:

if (Director::isDev()) {
   SS_Cache::set_cache_lifetime('any', -1, 100);
} else {
   SS_Cache::add_backend('two-level', 'Two-Levels', array(
       'slow_backend' => 'File',
       'fast_backend' => 'Apc',
       'slow_backend_options' => array('cache_dir' => TEMP_FOLDER . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR . 'cache')
    SS_Cache::pick_backend('two-level', 'any', 10);

The errors are something like:

[Wed Jun 12 12:25:23 2013] [error] [client ip] PHP Fatal error: Object::add_extension() - Can't find extension class for "DescriptionDataExtension" in /path/to/ on line 460

Where DescriptionDataExtension is an extension from one of the other sites. Anyone have tips? When I remove the code above (and before I added the code in) the site works fine. SS 3.0.5

Notice: Constant CMS_DIR already defined in /home/administrator/projects/ on line 7

Call Stack:

So when I enable caching on my SS sites, the ConfigManifest is pushing manifests from other sites into the current one?

The correct syntax is:

SS_Cache::pick_backend('two-level', 'Two-Levels', 10);
