WP Super Cache
WP Super Cache is installed but broken. (2 posts)

    Hi guys

    I haven't used the WP Super Cache plugin for a while but noticed a few of my old pages are failing to load because of this error.

    <!-- WP Super Cache is installed but broken. The path to wp-cache-phase1.php in wp-content/advanced-cache.php must be fixed! -->

    I don't have WP Super Cache installed.

    Obviously it's getting this error from when I used to use it.

    Any idea how I can fix it? I assume something in the database thinks I am still using the plugin somewhere?

    I've followed the uninstall instructions here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-super-cache/other_notes/ but it's still causing older pages to only partially load.

    Thanks :)

    Hi Mark -
    If you've removed the ../wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache directory and you've removed the advanced-cache.php and wp-cache-config.php files from wp-content, also make sure that ../wp-content/cache directory is fully removed.

    Then, check in your root webserver folder to ensure that .htaccess doesn't have the old rules in it from wp super cache. Also check ../wp-content/cache/.htaccess to make sure it's been removed.

    The database itself can't decide you're still using the plugin if the plugin is removed. I am tending to think you still have rules in .htaccess, and the ../wp-content/cache directory still exists with some content in it. If all of that is removed, WordPress *should* generate your content dynamically and on-the-fly with no caching.
