Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » problems persisted after deactivation because of change to .htaccess

  • I tried this plugin because popular wisdom is that WordPress runs faster with caching. My site was still slow after installing this and even slower accessing the dashboard – but the problems persisted after I deactivated the plugin. Luckily I opened .htacess to check on something else and discovered a section of W3TC code. My site is running better now that I’ve deleted that code. Still not as fast as I want, but no more 503 errors!

  • i also used this plugin and it slowed down my site 🙁
    can you tell me please what i have to do to get rid of this :\

    If you’re having the same problem I was having you’ll need to edit your .htaccess file, which lives in the root directory of your wordpress installation. You should be able to access this through the Files section of your web hosting control panel. The section inserted by the plugin that you want to delete will be labled as W3TC. Here’s some documentation on the .htaccess file: https://codex.wordpress.org/htaccess
    If you’re not comfortable editing this file your web host an probably help you.
