Support » Plugin: WP Super Cache » Can't Uninstall WP Super Cache

  • Resolved rachelm1122


    I’m experiencing a clash with Digital Access Pass so I want to remove this plugin but I am getting the following warning message:

    I tried deleting it from the FTP access but then the site crashed and I had to get my webhost to put it back!

    Warning: include(../../../wp-load.php) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/successfulgardendesign/ on line 8

    Warning: include() [function.include]: Failed opening ‘../../../wp-load.php’ for inclusion (include_path=’.:/usr/local/lib/php:/usr/local/php5/lib/pear’) in /home/successfulgardendesign/ on line 8
    UNINSTALL_WPSUPERCACHE must be set to a non-blank value in uninstall.php

    Yay! Thank you so much, that has done the trick 🙂

    Copy uninstall.php from where you have WP Super Cache installed to where your site is installed. The file wp-load.php is in this directory. Open your browser and load uninstall.php directly.

    So, I copied uninstall.php from the Wp Super Cache plugin folder and uploaded it to the main domain name folder.

    I opened and received, You are not allowed to call this page directly.

    Please tell me what I am doing incorrectly. This is VERY FRUSTRATING.

    Thank you.

    You’re running an old version of WP Super Cache. Follow the manual instructions on that page above to uninstall the plugin.

    Version ?

    I will try to follow the instructions to uninstall manually, but I don’t like modifying code.

    Weird, that uninstall.php is from the previous version. The one in doesn’t have that warning.

    Could WP plugin Search have served me an older version? My admin says Version .

    While yoour ‘here’, would you please tell me the exact lines to edit: 3.Remove the Super Cache mod_rewrite rules from your .htaccess file.

    Just delete anything that says Super Cache?

    I am very nervous I will damage my site.


    I deleted the line in wp-config.php, went back to the plugin admin, looked for the clear cache option.

    I did NOT find the clear cache option, but noticed that the plugin message that it added the line I just deleted!

    I found the delete cache option, uploaded the edited wp-config.php again, deleted the cache and before I could deactivate the plugin, this message appeared:

    WP_CACHE constant added to wp-config.php
    If you continue to see this warning message please see point 5 of the FAQ. The WP_CACHE line must be moved up.

    The plugin keeps adding the line back to the wp-config.php!

    This is beyond frustrating.

    Please assist.

    Delete the cache, and turn off caching on the “Easy” settings page. Now go to the Plugins page and disable the plugin. You can now remove the WP_CACHE define from wp-config.php. Sorry you had so much trouble!
