Cannot log into or view website after installing WP-Cache! (8 posts)

    Hi All,

    After downloading WP-Super Cache for my website (michaelcompitello.com), I can't access my my wp-admin login. I get an error message that says

    Warning: mysql_get_server_info(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home/michaelcompitello/michaelcompitello.com/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 1738 WordPress"

    and then "You cannot install because WordPress 3.5.1 requires MySQL version 5.0 or higher. You are running version ."

    line 1738 is "function db_version() {
    return preg_replace( '/[^0-9.].*/', '', mysql_get_server_info( $this->dbh ) );"

    At the moment, I can't even load my website proper on any browser. I've tried deleting the plugin via ftp and its mention in the relevant files as suggested in other posts, but the problem persists.

    Any help would be really appreciated!!

    FTP into your site (or whatever file management application your host provides) & delete the WP-Super Cache folder inside wp-content/plugins.

    Hi esmi,

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did this though an FTP client, with no change. Any other ideas?

    Try re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress 3.5. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    I have to say, though, that I am somewhat bemused by the error message. If you can run WordPress 3.5, then you can run WordPress 3.5.1. Are you sure you are running 3.5?

    I'll try this, thanks. Since I did a one-click install through my host a few years back, does this mean I should download wordpress then upload it through FTP?

    I checked, and am actually running 3.5.1

    In that case, just try re-uploading WordPress 3.5.1 as I described above. You don't have to run a re-install. All you're actually doing is trying to replace any files that have become corrupted on the server.

    I tried replacing everything except the wp-content folder, and still get the same error message. When I attempt to load another page on the website, I get:

    Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects.

    Is there something else I could try?

    1. Your site loads, though painfully slow. See this report and optimize it.
    2. Too many markup errors (319 Errors and 2 warnings). Validate your site.

    BTW, if you revert to the default theme with all plugins off, you can see that your sight may load much faster.
