Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » How to Remove Caching After W3 Total Cache is Deleted

  • I had to deactivate and delete W3 Total Cache.

    I am now seeing issues with caching probably because I should have deleted the cache before deactivating the plugin.

    I can see files here at /wp-content/cache/page_enhanced/ which I believe were created by W3 Total Cache.

    What can I do to safely resolve this?

  • I’m in a similar boat.

    Would an answer too.

    There might be some residue from W3TotalCache after deleting plugin that may be causing problems. I recently deactivated & deleted W3TotalCache & followed this article with some tweaks as it is a bit out of date:

    Make sure you BACKUP wp-content & wp-config

    Tweaks:
    ——-
    In the wp-config, remove line 2
    /** Enable W3 Total Cache Edge Mode */
    define(‘W3TC_EDGE_MODE’, true); // Added by W3 Total Cache

    Within wp-content folder go to cache folder :

    delete minify folder – contains W3TotalCache .htaccess
    delete page_enhanced folder – contains W3TotalCache .htaccess
    deleted tmp

    Hope this helps,
