WP Super Cache issues? (21 posts)

    I am using WP Super Cache. Without it, my blog bogs down the server. However, since I installed it, the plug in - Post Expirator (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-expirator/) - does not work and scheduled posts are not working. Does anyone have any idea how to resolve these issues?

    Scheduled posts work normally with Supercache (without Post Expirator) and I've never used that plugin so I can't tell you if it's doing something out of the ordinary. Sorry.

    The scheduled posts are not working normally (with or without Posts Expirator) and now, it keeps re-writing my .htaccess file in such a way that I get a "oops Method not allowed" message instead of my site if there is a www in front of the URL.
    http://www.freenclearstuff.com spits the error
    http://freenclearstuff.com does not --

    I end up having to totally delete my .htaccess file every few days to get the site working again.

    Hi, I can't uninstall this plugin which I suspect is stopping WP FancyBox from working. After deactivation when I try to uninstall I get the message:
    Warning: include(../../../wp-load.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home2/jlynntwo/public_html/photoanimoto/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 /home2/jlynntwo/public_html/photoanimoto/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/uninstall.php on line 8
    UNINSTALL_WPSUPERCACHE must be set to a non-blank value in uninstall.php
    As I'm fairly new to all this I don't have any idea what it means. Advice on how to remove it completely would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Emerald, I had the same problem and just uninstalled it forcefully through FTP.

    Emerald65 - check the readme.txt, as everything I'll tell you is already written there.

    Hi Donncha, where is the read me.txt. It's very frustrating being a newbie, I can't follow a lot of the tech stuff.

    SexyDawnT, thanks for your reply, unfortunately I have no idea what you mean. I should let you in to the works. Kind regards. John

    It's in your plugins/wp-super-cache/ directory or here.

    after upgrading to 0.9.9.4, I only see the php safe_mode warning (which I saw before as well, didn't bother me) but I don't have access to all the options any more?

    Donncha, you might as well have sent me an opera in Mandarin. What do I have to do to explain that I don't understand this kind of stuff. I'm a photographer, not a web master or programmer. I just want a simple way to get this off my system. If you make something easy to install you should make it equally easy to remove, or warn that it's not for beginners. Will I have to pay someone to do this for me ?

    Emerald65 - it's worth learning how to do this stuff just because it's basic site maintenance skills. Otherwise yes, hire someone or host your blog at WordPress.com. :(

    futta - yikes. Safe mode really doesn't help security but if you're stuck with it look for the string "safe_mode" in wp-cache.php and delete the "return false;" that follows it 12 lines below. (around line 149) You'll still get the warning but it won't stop you using the plugin.

    What a creep you are. Some basic decency and understanding go a long way, but you are obviously lacking in these departments. Learn some manners !!

    Sorry, if I was a creep I'd be calling you names or ignoring your requests. You're using a self hosted WordPress install, and with that brings responsibilities and it's a sign that you're at least willing to get your hands dirty maintaining your website.

    The first line of the instructions asks you to remove a single line from a single file, wp-config.php - use your ftp client to find it, edit the file, and upload it again. That will be enough to get your site back to working order. It's presumed that when you have a self hosted WordPress site that you can use ftp or other basic tools.

    @donncha: removing the 'return false' wp-cache.php worked, thanks. will this be fixed in the following release? as wp-super-cache (fortunately) can work under 'safe mode'-conditions (no matter the lack of merit of that setting), excluding those users from accessing the config must be a bug, no? :)

    I'm honestly surprised that the plugin works for you in safe mode. Some safe mode settings will stop the server accessing the cache files. That's why there's that warning. I'll remove the "return false" anyway.

    Good thing is, I think safe mode is going away in PHP6 :)

    Hi, Donncha. Just a note to say that the latest Supercache upgrade blanks out all WP admin pages (at least on my sites). We upgraded Supercache this morning, and upon upgrade the admin interface was no longer available. Deleting the supercache folder from the plugins directory revived the admin site immediately. FWIW.

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Hi there, and thanks for the response. I'm happy to look for you if you can tell me where to find it (I run a lot of WP sites and have learned a lot of basics from trial and error, but not sure where to find that one.)

    Thanks!
