Can't access dashboard because of W3TC update!

  • I just updated W3TC on http://www.similestack.com and although the home page seems to work fine, I can’t access /wp-admin at all. I get the following error:

    Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘FileOperationException’ with message ‘/home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/w3tc-config/master.php could not be created, please run following command:

    • <strong style=”color: #f00;”>chmod 777 /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/cache/tmp
    • <strong style=”color: #f00;”>chmod 777 /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/w3tc-config
    • ‘ in /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/inc/functions/activation.php:127 Stack trace: #0 /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/ConfigWriter.php(159): w3_throw_on_write_error(‘/home/audisite/…’, Array) #1 /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/Config.php(71): W3_ConfigWriter->save() #2 /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/CloudFlare.php(174): W3_Config->save() #3 /home/audisite/public_ in /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/inc/functions/activation.php on line 127

    I went into FTP to rename all the W3TC folders and files in wp-content and once I do it works fine, but the new W3TC won’t let me access my dashboard.

    I do have Cloudflare installed which I think is part of the problem but it’s obvious that the bug is on W3TC’s side.

    Please help! Thank you.

  • Try to:

    1)
    Remove:
    wp-content/advanced-cache.php
    wp-content/db.php
    wp-content/w3tc/
    wp-content/w3-total-cache-config.php
    wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/

    If you want to remove w3tc manually

    2)
    chmod 777 /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/cache/tmp
    chmod 777 /home/audisite/public_html/similestack.com/wp-content/w3tc-config

    as advised in the error. If you want to keep your w3tc.

    HTH,
    Yotis

    Thanks I’ll just remove the plugin entirely

    These issues will be fixed in the next release.

    Hi Frederick and co,

    I have the same issue. At first I got the Fatal Error: Fatal error: Uncaught exception ‘FileOperationException’ with message ‘……/wp-content/w3tc-config/master.php could not be created’.

    After I created the blank master.php and chmod 777 everything on there, I just got a blank page: http://galleryhelios.com/mindbody/wp-admin/update-core.php?action=do-plugin-upgrade“.

    I cant get into the back end at all even though the site seems to be still running. Help please.
