WP Super Cache
Caching still exist after uninstall (21 posts)

    Hey.

    I have installed, configured and then deleted this plugin according to the instructions, but somehow my website seems to use a cached version created hours before I uninstalled the plugin. It was causing some headache in my network install so I jumped over to Quick Cache. Regardless, I followed the instructions very carefully and this is not my first time uninstalling this either. Somehow this time the cached file it still commented in my source file.

    Anyone know how I can remove this once and for all? It totally breaks my website. Soo frustrated.

    Any tip is very much appreciated!

    check your

    -wp-config.php and see if the define('WP_CACHE'... line is still there.
    -your .htaccess to see if the SC rewrite rules are still there.

    Thanks so much for your reply!

    Nope. No signs of Super Cache. Only the cached file is still there, no matter what I do. I tried installing Quick Cache, then W3TC with no luck. The main page is still the cached version.

    You still have some of supercache installed. See http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-super-cache/other_notes/ for instructions on manual removal.

    Indeed there are still remains of super cache. Only thing is I don't know where else to look. I am very sure I have followed the instructions and deleted everything there is. Things worked out great when I uninstalled on my other site.. Any more suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Can you paste your .htaccess in pastebin and link here?

    You have two sets of rewrite rules there. See http://wpmututorials.com/known-issues/rewrites/ for the corrections needed.

    Also, that looks like you upgraded MU and at some point had applied some hacks to get www support.

    If you remove the wp-content/cache folder, the cached version of the home page will no longer exist.

    Yeah, I have been thinking to fix the duplicate issues. Thanks for that. However, I have removed the wp-content/cache folder along with the uninstall of WP Super Cache, but the cached homepage is still there. Super weird..

    Again, thank you for helping me out.

    Your browser might be caching the page somehow. Clear the cache in your browser and press shift while hitting refresh to load the page again. Monitor your access_log to make sure your browser really requests the page rather than loading it from cache.

    I have hard refreshed on Safari, FF and Chrome. The caching is still in the source code. I honestly don't know how to read an acces_log but this is the last I see of Super Cache:

    [17/Mar/2011:10:53:24 -0600] "GET /wp-admin/network/plugins.php?action=deactivate&networkwide=1&plugin=wp-super-cache%2Fwp-cache.php&plugin_status=all&paged=1&s&_wpnonce=694b81af61 HTTP/1.1" 302 529 "http://www.mydomain.com/wp-admin/network/plugins.php" "Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10_6_6; en-us) AppleWebKit/533.19.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/5.0.3 Safari/533.19.4"

    Seems like that is when I deactivated the plugin. Note that I am using Headway theme which has some caching itself. I am not sure if this is affecting WP Super Cache though.

    Switch to a different theme and see if you still get the cached page. If it's not the cached page then contact the folks at headway.

    How about that. Switching to another theme did not work either. I have contacted the headway team. Hopefully they will have a smart solution to this. I will let you know.

    Thanks!

    So I am redirected back to this forum. They suggested to reinstall and uninstall one more time, which I already have.

    Donncha, do you have any other suggestions how I can fix this?

    Load up your wp-config.php and check if the text WP_CACHE is in there. If it is then delete that line (make sure you don't upset the <?php and ?> tags though).

    Even if you've done this before, humour me and look again :)

    I checked the wp-config one more time, no WP_CACHE there. The tags are in order.

    Can I possibly send you login for a ftp account for you to take a look behind the scenes? Or if you have other suggestions, I am all ears. The least I want to do is give up and have a fresh install.

    Thank you for the support!

    Fixed it! Hold on to your hat, there was an index.html in your root directory. I renamed it to index2.html and the supercache comment disappeared. Do you remember creating that?

    Not at all. I was actually looking into it but figured it wouldn't matter because it was not connected to super cache. Well, what do you know!

    Why and what is that do you think?

    Wow, hats off to you, sir! THANK YOU.
