[resolved] Website still caching after W3TC Removal (5 posts)

    I'm aware that this question has been posed before, so clearly it is an ongoing issue. I have removed W3TC according to the procedures suggested here (http://journalxtra.com/websiteadvice/wordpress/uninstall-w3-total-cache-proper-3920/), but it appears that the website continues to be cached.

    It was through trying to update my site's primary stylesheet that this was becoming apparent. The changes are not being reflected even though the stylesheet has indeed been updated and saved correctly through FTP. The same holds true of my theme files.

    I'm grasping at straws right now and would appreciate any advice.
    My site is http://www.safeinternational.biz and is a multi-site installation.

    Ok, so now this is really messed up. In a desperate attempt at starting afresh, I moved my entire wordpress installation into a subdirectory as a "back up" and simply put a blank index.html in the root directory of my site. However, on accessing the site, the blank index file is not loaded, something is still being cached.

    Help please.

    Did you just disable the plugin or did you completely remove it? Also your htaccess file and wp-config may temporarily need to be writable to get htaccess and such back to before the install. Does W3 still have entries in your htaccess file? Delete them (the cache changes) if you still do not want W3 total cache. You can also reinstall W3 and then uninstall (as long as htaccess and wp-config writable - don't forget to change back when you are done) to clean up the files it changed.

    Hope That Helps

    All sorted now. There were other issues at hand which I'd overlooked. After addressing those, the procedure outlined in the link I originally posted worked fine.
