A while ago, I had published a step-by-step guide about how to install WP-Super-Cache in WordPress successfully. Now, I’m going through the upgrade procedure, so to safely and effortlessly upgrade the plugin whenever a new version is released. I know that documenting this sh** should not be needed, but it turns out the installation of this software is rather complicated (compared to other WordPress plugins I use), so a step-by-step upgrade guide is almost mandatory.
- First of all, go to the plugin’s administration panel and set caching to OFF.
- Delete the expired and cached pages by pressing the relevant buttons on the same page.
- Make the
wp-contentdirectory writeable (how to make a directory writeable)
- Go to WordPress’ plugin administration panel and de-activate WP-Super-Cache.
- Now, replace the old version of the plugin with the new one in
wp-content/plugins/. This should be straightforward.
- Now, go to WordPress’ plugin administration panel and activate WP-Super-Cache.
- Go to WP-Super-Chache’s admin panel and set caching to ON again.
- Remove the write-bit from
wp-contentdirectory so to make it read-only for the web server process (f.ex:
chmod go-w wp-content).
That should be it.
