W3 Total Cache
Uninstall of w3 Total Cache Crashes whole WP site (4 posts)

    Attempted to install W3 was great except it crashed my whole site at http://www.epstalent.com. After removing via FTP from plugin folders I get this error below and cannot access the entire site. ~Fustrating~

    Any ideas how to fix this? It is obviously looking for files that it cannot find. I will try to re-install over writing the original instal to satisfy the need for files.

    All ideas welcome!!! Help!! Free my site from the curse of W3 Supercache.

    That happened to me once.

    There are other files that are not uninstalled when you do the uninstall so you have to find them manually.

    Go back in via FTP and if I remember, look in your WP Content folder and delete these files,
    object-cache.php.
    advanced-cache.php.
    db.php.

    Then see if you can get back into your site.

    Your htaccess also may have a bunch of code in it from the plugin too.

    Excellent suggestion, I had same issue and my site was broken completely. I deleted all three files and it worked. Thank you Miz.Michele. Appreciate.
