    First of all, I didn’t notice any changes in the way the website flowed. However, that’s not my issue.

    My issue is, WP Super Cache broke my website! I work for a company and I monitor their wordpress site. One day, the images on the site wouldn’t load anymore. I had to contact the original creator of the site because she had the file location of the website, and nothing I was doing would help fix the problem. This was something she hadn’t seen happen before, she didn’t know what to do, and she has 10 years of WordPress experience. She had to enlist someone off of Fivver, to help her solve the problem.
    They found out that the culprit was none other than WP SUPER CACHE! Apparently WP Super Cache got caught in a ‘loop’ and corrupted the data base! Oh how lovely.

    WP Super Cache screwing up cost the company quite a bunch of money for finding someone to help fix the issue, and I also got into trouble because of it, even though I didn’t technically do anything wrong.
    Because the manager is not tech savvy, and doesn’t understand how plugins work, or even what they are. She has banned us from using any plugins too, so now we’re not even allowed to use them at all because of WP SUPER CACHE!

    So yeah, this plug in may corrupt your database, I would recommend STAYING FAR AWAY FROM IT.

    Thank you for your review, but I have WP Super Cache installed on multiple websites for several years including a website I host out of my basement with no issues at all. Are you sure it is not some funny MySQL or database code that interfered with WP Super Cache?

    WP Super cache has many small bugs here are there but it can’t corrupt anything.

    This is not a problem of WPSC but of something else, possibly some hosting or server problem.

    Also any “corporate” WP installation should have a proper backup strategy and should be able to be restored in less than an hour or two.
