Is possible to clear the cache using drush (or else?) when I don't have the codebase anymore.

Here is the use case: I deleted the codebases of a lot of sites with backing up. Now I'm going to backup and delete the databases but I forgot to clear the caches before deleting the codebases. Now its too much work to restore all the sites one by one and clear the caches and do everyting again.

    Drush needs to bootstrap Drupal. If you removed all the Drupal files, Drush cannot do anything. – kiamlaluno Feb 7 '15 at 15:02
  • do you know another way without the codebase? – duru Feb 7 '15 at 15:08
  • its strange, but clear tables: cache, cache_* and ctools_object_cache and ctools_css_cache – Gaydabura Feb 7 '15 at 16:03
  • It doesn't make sense, since without code you could delete all the database tables, which are not going to be used. – kiamlaluno Feb 7 '15 at 20:41
  • I couldn't make myself clear. I am backing up the databases. And all code is already backed up and deleted (bad desicions, ok.). But then I remember that I should have cleared the caches to reduce sqldump sizes and overhead while restoring. – duru Feb 8 '15 at 12:55
