    All my relevant files and folders have 775 or higher permissions, and wp-cache-config-sample.php is present at that location.
    I get this error on the Settings page:

    Error: Sample WP-Cache config file ( /home/amator/public_html/ebooks-comics.org/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/wp-cache-config-sample.php) does not exist.Verify you installation.
    Cannot continue... fix previous problems and retry.

    I managed to figure out why i was getting two separate errors on two different websites while the plugin was working ok on others.

    In the wp-config.php where you get the code

    define( 'WPCACHEHOME', '/PATH/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/' ); //Added by WP-Cache Manager

    The actual line of code the plugin writes on installation is:

    define( 'WPCACHEHOME', ' /PATH/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/' ); //Added by WP-Cache Manager

    If you look closely at the two lines you'll see a small detail that seems to break the path to wp-super-cache, it's an empty space in this place: ' /PATH
    That's why some people had success activating the plugin after reinstallation, because sometimes it skips the empty space and writes: '/PATH

    How come no one figured this out till now!?

    After figuring out the problem on my first website, which was getting around 5 erorrs, i went to my second one which was getting some exec() error, closed the gap and the error was gone.

    Right now, i believe close to every path error people have comes from that gap in the code.

    Maybe you shold write this in the FAQ if you can't fix it.
