WP Super Cache
I'm SO angry (7 posts)

    This add-on popped up in plug-ins for my new blog. Innocently, I activated it. Then, after glancing at the humongous number of things you had to be aware of if you ever wanted to throw it overboard, I decided to do just that. I got a messae like this:

    Warning: include(../../../wp-load.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home8/theheap0/public_html/howtoremovewartsmoleskintags/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/uninstall.php on line 8

    Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening '../../../wp-load.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib64/php:/usr/lib/php') in /home8/theheap0/public_html/howtoremovewartsmoleskintags/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/uninstall.php on line 8

    UNINSTALL_WPSUPERCACHE must be set to a non-blank value in uninstall.php

    Soooo, since i was just starting this blog I decided to start over -- I uninstalled WP on the site and then re-installed it. Guess what, I STILL get that message when I tried to delete these blankety-blank files.

    I AM NOT A TECHIE. I DON'T WANT TO BE A TECHIE. Nor do I think I should have to go find someone to do this for me. Nor do I think I should have to waste my time trying to figure this out, or even type up these questions. I AM SO ANGRY to be being put through this, completely unnecessarily..

    WHAT THE HECK DO I HAVE TO DO TO FIX THIS?????

    Or, if I just leave it on my site UNactivated, what additional harm will it do now???

    There are instructions in the readme.txt, but the simplest thing to do is deactivate the plugin on the plugins page and remove the line that defines WP_CACHE in your wp-config.php.

    plugins don't just pop up - you had to install it

    Some hosts add it in an effort to protect their hosting, so perhaps that's what happened here.

    Samuel -- I activated it, but I definitely didn't install it. When I installed WP, it was sitting there along with a number of others that I hadn't gone out and looked for. I'd never have known about it elsewise and certainly wouldn't have chosen it.

    That's great, donncha. Thanks. I already have it deactivated. Now all I need is where to find the wp-config.php, whatever that is. (I did tell you that I'm NOT a techie. Heck, I'm over the moon ecstatically proud of myself because I can build a simple html table.)

    The wp-config.php should be in the "root" directory where your site is. Files like wp-login.php and the wp-admin directory are in that directory too. Just fire up your ftp programme, and there should be an edit file function on right click when you find it.
