Followed all the instructions. Clicked Activate button next to the plugin and then navigated to Settings -> Super Cache TAB.
... this caused WordPress to crash. At this point the plugin has already generated the following file and is trying to display it:
The screen goes blank because this is a generated PHP and it is malformed in the following way:
<?php /* WP-Cache Config Sample File See wp-cache.php for author details. */ define( 'WPCACHEHOME', ABSPATH . /Users/id/Sites/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/" ); //Added by WP-Cache Manager $cache_compression = 0; // Super cache compression $cache_enabled = false; .... (rest of file)
SO - The answer is to add the missing double-quote after ABSPATH . which is killing the PHP. Suggestion: fix this backquoting and / or add to the troubleshooting FAQ section of readme.txt:
Users should check their wp-content/wp-cache-config.php after it is created for missing quotes after the line
define( 'WPCACHEHOME', ABSPATH .
