Support » Plugin: WP Super Cache » Removing WP Super Cache

  • rebecca


    Hello! I am trying my best to completely uninstall/remove WP Super Cache, at least for the time being. Unfortunately, however, the plugin still seems to be affecting elements of my site. I have:

    – Uninstalled the plugin
    – Removed the leftover files in wp-content
    – Removed text relating to WP Super Cache from .htaccess and wp-config.

    Is there anything else I may have missed?

    The plugin is particularly affecting an event-related front end submission form (you can see it here). I think I previously excepted this page from being cached in the plugin settings.

    I would be very grateful for your help. Thank you.

    Hi there. I really do need help with this, please – I’m still receiving HTTP 500 error on the front end submission form, which I think is caused by a conflict with WP Super Cache. I also still seem to view ‘cached’ versions of some of site’s pages after WP Super Cache has been removed.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I need to do, in addition to the above, to make sure every element of WP Super Cache is completely removed.

    Thank you!



    Check this section out:

    To manually uninstall:

    Turn off caching on the plugin settings page and clear the cache.
    Deactivate the plugin on the plugins page.
    Remove the WP_CACHE define from wp-config.php. It looks like define( ‘WP_CACHE’, true );
    Remove the Super Cache mod_rewrite rules from your .htaccess file.
    Remove the files wp-content/advanced-cache.php and wp-content/wp-cache-config.php
    Remove the directory wp-content/cache/
    Remove the directory wp-super-cache from your plugins directory.

    Remove the WP_CACHE define from wp-config.php. It looks like define( ‘WP_CACHE’, true );
    Remove the rules (see above) that the plugin wrote to the .htaccess file in your root directory.
    Delete the wp-super-cache folder in the plugins folder.
    Optionally delete advanced-cache.php, wp-cache-config.php and the cache folder in wp-content/.
