As far as I'm aware the default theme uses theme1 for the cache. If you have uninstalled themes from the site and you never reinstalled the default theme (for some reason), it should be safe to remove any theme cache folder besides theme1. If you remove the wrong cache directory mybb will regenerate it as long as the parent directory is writable.

My forum is still migrating. Once the dns propagation is done, I'll remove all except theme1 and report back.

Make sure to back up the directory in case you happen to delete one which is still being used by your forum.

The theme itself is not stored in those directories. You will have to delete them from the admin panel.

MyBB templates are stored in the database which means that your host's configuration shouldn't affect this. Are you using memcached or redis by any chance?

By the way, I just want you to know that I also have another MyBB forum. And the changes there are instant the minute you press F5. But in this one it isn't. The difference was that on my other one I installed via uploading the files on FTP. I'm not sure if that matters though.

Can you post your inc/config.php file with the database information, and everything else that is sensible, removed?
