[W3 Total Cache] Deactivating kills WP!!! (4 posts)

    wp-config.php has this in it before deactivation of the plugin:

    <?php
    /** Enable W3 Total Cache */
    define('WP_CACHE', true); // Added by W3 Total Cache
    /**
    * The base configurations of the WordPress.

    And after I disable the plugin it looked like this:

    <?php/**
    * The base configurations of the WordPress.

    ie. the W3 Total Cache plugin forgot to put a carriage return back in the php file after it stripped out its contents and as a result the whole file was effectively commented!!

    This kills WordPress. You need to manually add in the carriage return and then WP works again.

    Anyway, I think this is fixed in the next release, I did find a case that caused this.
