    I get this error in the dashboard.

    Warning! WP Super Cache caching was broken but has been fixed! The script advanced-cache.php could not load wp-cache-phase1.php.

    The file /home/scythewo/public_html/wp-content/advanced-cache.php has been recreated and WPCACHEHOME fixed in your wp-config.php. Reload to hide this message.

    In wp-config the global settings look like this:

    define('WP_CACHE', true);
    define('WPCACHEHOME', '');

    (I haven’t touched them).

    I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin a couple of times. I can’t tell whether it’s working despite the error. The site is quite slow but that might be due to Divi.

    Any idea what to do? I’ve looked for other solutions such as
    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/warning-wp-super-cache-caching-was-broken-but-has-been-fixed-2/” but wasn’t able to find one that worked for me.

    I am also having this problem, but the globals are actually set in my wp-config.php. I had DreamHost check the file permissions and everything looks good there.

    define('WP_CACHE', true);
    define( 'WPCACHEHOME', '/home/dh_32cx77/rachelhansbro.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/' );

    Tried deleting the plugin and re-installing as well.

    Are you using version 1.6.7 of the plugin? Can you try version 1.6.5? You can find that version on this page: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-super-cache/advanced/

    Reverting to 1.6.5 removes the error for me.

    @kluny – Was version 1.6.7 the first version of the plugin that you installed? It’s odd that WPCACHEHOME was blank but if you update to 1.6.7 it will work ok now. 1.6.7 added code that checked if WPCACHEHOME was set in your config file. If it wasn’t then it wouldn’t update the config file.

    I’m not sure how a blank WPCACHEHOME was defined in your wp-config.php however.

    @ofarrellaudio – is the path in your post correct? Does it point at where WP Super Cache is installed?

    @kluny I’ve updated the development version of the plugin to handle blank “WPCACHEHOME” definitions in wp-config.php. Version 1.6.5 of the plugin probably fixed that in the config file but future versions of the plugin will detect it now.

    @ofarrellaudio – if you’re still seeing the warning message can you try the development version? I’m running it on my own blog and it’s stable. You can find it at the link below:

    Thanks @donncha. I migrated the site from a dev server to the live one using a plugin – maybe something went weird along the way. Thanks for fixing it!

    Hi @donncha. I tried the dev version as well as the newly available 1.6.8 version. Unfortunately the problem still persists. I put in a support ticket with Dreamhost again and they assured me again that all permissions are set as they should be. I’m not sure where to go from here.
