Support » Plugin: WP Super Cache » [Plugin: WP Super Cache] Super cached files not being removed

  • i use latest version of Wp Super cache.

    I use nginx, also latest version.

    i have a problem that super cached files are not being removed. normal cached files are updated just fine, if i siwth to half-on mode.

    i listed through many topics here but didnt find any solution.


    any tips, donncha?

    Use the debug system in the plugin, check your access_logs for wp_cron.php being called. That’s what does the job of expiring pages.

    I dont have access_log, because it would slow down my server a lot (1.6M pageviews a day).

    i enabled debug system and it sent me like 400 emails before it almost crashed the server, but no notice about cleaning the cache.

    all i got is stuff like

    Renamed temp supercache file to …
    Writing non-gzipped buffer to wp-cache cache file.
    No wp-cache file exists. Must generate a new one.
    supercache dir: …

    nothing really interesting.

    i tried removing advanced-cache.php and creating it again but it didnt help.

    ok, i tried it again with lower level of details.

    now i got this

    rebuild_or_gc: deleted /home/admin/domains/

    but it didnt remove anything

    I really have to remove the debug by email function. Logging to a file is a lot better. I don’t know why your cache files aren’t being deleted from what you’ve posted, sorry!

    i tried couple of more things but with no success. i browsed through older posts here and found people having same problems, but nothing really helped.

    – chmod of files/directories is correct
    – chown is correct as well
    – there are no weird characters in directory names
    – all directories can be manually removed if i log to ftp

    i have no idea…

    right now it seems wp super cache is simply too buggy for me. i switched to w3 total cache and it works without any problems…
