WP Super Cache
hijacked my non-registered users (2 posts)

    I fixed the problem and wanted to share it with those of you on this thread so you won't have to deal with it in case this happens to you. I installed a caching plugin last year called Super Cache. It basically caches the whole site regularly in an effort to speed up the response time on the site. It created a directory OUTSIDE of the regular WP directories. When I uninstalled it (because it sucked) it left the folder with all of the current cache as a remnant on my server.

    For some unknown reason it was defaulting non-registered users to that folder. I must have tweaked some plugin or WP setting that triggered it. Lesson learned, stay away from this plugin.

    Thank you all again for your inputs and help. I really appreciate it.

    When did you uninstall it and what version did you have installed? It's supposed to clear the cache when uninstalled. Unfortunately you probably left the mod_rewrite rules in your .htaccess and they served the out of date cache files.

    Oh, it doesn't suck :)
