    Super Cache Does Not Install or Work Properly -
    > Downloaded through /wp-admin
    > Attempted to activate with a bunch of errors.
    > Tried to delete Plugin, but could not, (more errors).
    > Reactivated, and refreshed only one warning, (wp/content writeable).
    > Attempted to setup using recommended settings.
    > Website runs ultra slow now, was fine before installing Plugin.

    The notes within the tabs by radio buttons are very confusing to the novice. There are "Update" buttons on each page of settings, yet nothing to tell the user that it is enabled or actively working, so its impossible to know what needs to be updated and what doesn't.

    Now I cannot even remove the Plugin, upon trying to delete I get the following errors:

    "Warning: main(../../../wp-load.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory..."


    "Warning: main() [function.include]: Failed opening '../../../wp-load.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in..."

    and finally: UNINSTALL_WPSUPERCACHE must be set to a non-blank value in uninstall.php

    I wish that people would not release Plugins to the public that do not work. Now your Plugin is on my server, slowing down my site and I cannot even Delete Super Cache!

  2. Edit the uninstall.php file in your wp-super-cache plugin folder. There's a line for UNINSTALL_WPSUPERCACHE and it tells you what to do. Change it to a NON BLANK value. Then you can uninstall it.
