W3 Total Cache
wp-content/cache folder at 20+ GB (9 posts)

    I'm in the process of moving a WordPress site using W3 Total Cache to another server. It turns out that the wp-content/cache/page_enhanced folder is HUGE!

    Any ideas at to how this happened and how it can be avoided on the new servers?

    This is the bug. W3TC doesn't remove enhance-cached pages anymore from some reason; even when Empty All Caches is performed manually. I needed to create cron jobs that delete the cache folder so you could do this..

    Note: the bug is also present in the last v0.9.2.9!

    I need to delete manually the files in cache folder. The empty cache works but not delete the files. Maybe an option to clear files?

    HHHoooly crap, I have the same thing. Couldn't figure out why clearing the cache timed out the PHP process. Even through the command line, running "rm -rf *" took a half hour...

    Added weekly cronjobs for all my sites with W3...

    Yikes.

    (As a side note, using "rm -rf *" is really dangerous. Best to put in the full directory path. <restoring from backups now, &**#$>)

    Same problem here. How can I create a cron job to solve this problem?

    I found a caching problem with the All-in-One Event Calendar. You need to disable caching under advanced options for the event calendar page. Otherwise your cache will be flooded.
