Page shows nothing but gibberish when I deactivate W3TC (3 posts)

    Odd issue - never encountered it before. Although the dashboard is fine, my actual site is showing nothing but gibberish on all the pages when I deactivate it (yes, DE-activate it.) When I re-activate, the problem goes away. I DON'T want to use that plugin anymore so does anyone know how to remove it safely without getting this problem? Just bizarre.. Any ideas? Guidance here would be most appreciated.

    I had the same problem when first playing with W3 Total Cache. Did you check to make sure your htaccess has been updated after the deactivation. If not then make it writeable and then try again. You may also have to make the wp-config writable as well. Don't forget to change them back when you are done.

    Hope that helps.
