W3 Total Cache
Site slowed down after last update (6 posts)

    I have been using W3 Total for a long time, without any kind of trouble, but after the last update (, my site performance is horrible. The server is pretty slow the only different thing I did, was upgrade the W3 Total Cache.

    Till yeastarday I would never suspect that the plugin was causing the trouble, but I asked my hosting for support and they told me this:

    "could see that as the cache files are a lot in the directory "/home/hiper/public_html/wp-content/cache", the php processes are using more CPU to search through these heaps of cache files and re-build them. You have to clear these cache files to decrease the load."

    I already trying to re-install the plugin, empty all the cache files, but the trouble persists.

    Anyone with same problem ? Any light ???

    Thank you for the support.

    You have to google "how to unistall w3 total cache" (Yes, you have to do some tricks to remove this poison)

    There's a chance that W3 Total Cache ruined my htacess too, and generating a lot of false 404.

    W3 TC didn't messed up anything in my htaccess. if this cna help. But you should definitely do a backup before running a "big" plugin like this one just in case. Or ask your host to put your website to what it was a few hours earlier :)

    I just deleted W3 earlier tonight. (Monday) I've been having major trouble since the last update.

    Very slow.

    Plus it may have been reacting with WP Touch (which I've currently deactivated) I would have sessions where it would only come up in mobile mode on my desktop.

    Things seem to be working great now.

    I have exact same problem.

    WP Touch in Chrome displayed the site in Mobile Theme.

    Plus several messages from Google Webmaster that pages are not reachable.

    I deleted w3tc and installed WP Super Cache.
