W3 Total Cache
Removed plugin and all references but site still broken (2 posts)

    My site crashed and the only error I get is the following:

    W3 Total Cache Error: some files appear to be missing or out of place. Please re-install plugin or remove /home1/guitarw1/public_html/ingeniousinternetincome/wp-content/object-cache.php.

    So I've had to manually remove all references to w3 total cache. I've done the following:

    delete the following: advanced-cache.php, db.php, w3tc/ (entire folder) and w3-total-cache-config.php

    Opened wp-config.php - Removed the following line : define(‘WP_CACHE’, true);

    Opened the .htaccess file and removed all W3TC re-write rules in it. Checked for any secondary .htaccess files to ensure there were no other W3TC info listed.

    Deleted the w3-total-cache folder under plugins.

    At this point, there shouldn't be anything causing issues, however I still get that exact same message as above.

    "W3 Total Cache Error: some files appear to be missing or out of place. Please re-install plugin or remove /home1/guitarw1/public_html/ingeniousinternetincome/wp-content/object-cache.php."

    How do I get this to go away and to get my site back?

    My site is still broken and I can't find anyway to get it back. I was hoping to get some idea on how to fix this issue, but I'm surprised not to have heard anything. My only other option is to go back to a backup from October, which will mean losing a lot of content and I'd rather not do that if possible.

    Since posting this, I've tried looking through all the main code looking for references to W3 Total cache with no luck. I've also reverted back to the default theme, no luck. I'm out of ideas.
