First of all let me say I’ve followed all FAQ and on-screen instructions from both plugins and I’m still experiencing problems.
Yesterday I noticed some features of the WordPress SEO plugin weren’t working – namely I couldn’t access the plugin through Post view (at the bottom of the page). I went to my plugins to reinstall Yoast and found the following error message from W3:
“W3 Total Cache Error: some files appear to be missing or out of place. Please re-install plugin or remove /home/drunkenwerewolf/drunkenwerewolf.com/wp-content/advanced-cache.php.W3 Total Cache Error: some files appear to be missing or out of place. Please re-install plugin or remove /home/drunkenwerewolf/drunkenwerewolf.com/wp-content/db.php.W3 Total Cache Error: some files appear to be missing or out of place. Please re-install plugin or remove /home/drunkenwerewolf/drunkenwerewolf.com/wp-content/object-cache.php.”
Although the W3 was re-installed very recently (within the past 48 hours with everything functioning fine after that), I went to deactivate and reinstall the plugin. This threw up a blank white page with the above message only. I had to restore my site to get anything else back. Unfortunately the restore didn’t solve the plugin clash and I don’t have another restore saved within recent history.
I’ve disabled the Object Cache and W3 also suggested I enable a feature “to support WordPress SEO” – no other explanation – which I’ve done. Although, touch wood, I’m not getting any error messages, WordPress SEO still isn’t showing an option to index posts on the Post page and in individual Post view.
I know this could be a problem from either plugin, but any help is much appreciated!! My dashboard is very slow and I’m also not currently able to use Yoast to full effect which is less than ideal. Honestly I’d rather get rid of W3 if it’s causing the problem, but whenever I go to uninstall it I get the first error message and have to restore the site again.
