    When, on http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/site-url/ it says:

    "NOTE:WordPress 2.0 and 2.0.1 use a cache file. (2.0.2 does not)
    You MUST delete this cache or this database change will not appear to have worked.
    Delete everything in the /wp-content/cache directory as soon as you make the database change."

    Does it really, really mean that? Does that mean delete all the folders and their contents found insisde the /wp-content/cache directory?

    Those folders include things like "user logins," "users" and inside those there are more. Does it really mean "delete EVERYTHING?"

    Thanks,
    kwc

    Yep :)
    It's a temporary cache - it helps reduce server load for busy blogs and either deleting it or removing it entirely will not harm your blog at all.

    Delete the contents of /cache

    It won't hurt - promise :)
