    Hello @warcraft14115

    Thank you for your review and I am sorry about the issue you are experiencing. If you are trying to use both plugins at the same time this is not recommended as it can cause a lot of conflicts.
    If however deactivated W3 Total Cache and tried to use another caching plugin and failed, this is because in some cases there are leftovers in the .htaccess file, folders, and files in wp-content folder.
    To remove W3 Total Cache completely, please follow the instructions below:

    1. Purge Cache
    2. Deactivate and Delete Plugin
    3. Check .htaccess File (make backup)
    W3TC will create many directives in .htaccess file to control the caching behavior. Each section will start and end with comments like “#BEGIN W3TC Page Cache core” and “#END W3TC Page Cache core”.
    Ensure that no residual entries are left over in your .htaccess file after deleting the plugin.
    4. Delete wp-content files and folders
    – cache folder
    – w3tc-config folder
    – object-cache.php (if exists)
    – advanced-cache.php (if exists)
    – dbcache.php (if exists)
    – upgrade folder
    5. Delete Cached Files from CDN (if using CDN)
    Besides deleting all the relevant files, if you use CDN then ensure to purge the cached content from your CDN. This is necessary when you enabled minify option in W3TC settings. You should delete the minified and combined scripts and CSS files from your CDN server to avoid the site breaking on the browser.

    After these steps, you can use another caching plugin or re-install W3 Total Cache.
    Please let us know if this helps!
