    Trust me.

    Be very careful.

    Hello @edibarboza,

    Can you please describe your issue? Were you unable to login to your WP Dashboard?
    Can you please share the settings?

    @edibarboza it’s unfair to give this plugin 1 star because of you incapability



    @edibarboza , i should have trusted you – this plugin rewrites your wp-config file, adds its own passwords, which you wont know, and BAM, you are at their ransom. 12 hours later, youll receive a mail offering to “help you fix” your site…

    Hello @watershare,

    Can you please share any proof for your statements? W3 Total Cache only adds:

    /** Enable W3 Total Cache */
    define('WP_CACHE', true); // Added by W3 Total Cache

    to your wp-config presuming that you have sufficient file write permission, if not you need to add it yourself.
    Nothing else is added by W3 Total Cache.
    Please contact us at so we can assist you and fix any issue.




    Read the other reviews that are similar to mine on this page – i should have, before i trusted your “plugin”.

    You had NO permission to change ANYTHING in my wp-config, and that is certainly not “all” you have changed.

    I am not interested in your “support”, like i said above, i have ignored your ransom email already, and have rebuilt my site, so you cant get in ever again

    I am just here to warn others to not fall into your trap.

    Cheers. Just a matter of time before your goose will be cooked.
