Delete WP Super Cache plugin completely from web server

\nIf your blog is giving Internal Server Error, then obviously you will not be able to access it. So in that case, what you will need to do is, you will need to log into your ftp client and manually delete all the files from there. Here I will be telling you the locations of all the plugin as well as the cache files stored by this plugin which you will need to delete to make sure that your website works fine after getting rid of the internal server error caused by WP Super Cache.\n\nWP Super Cache Plugin folder\n\nJust Navigate to root directory of your blog > WP-Contents > Plugins. You will find the folder named as WP Super Cache. Delete that.\n\nCache configuration files\n\nThere will be 2 files in the root of WP-content folder named as WP-cache-config.php and Advance cahce.php. Delete both of these files.\n\nCache folder\n\nThere will be a folder named as cache inside the same WP-Content folder, that contains all the cached pages of your website. Delete that folder. keep in mind that if you have an established website since a bit of time, then this folder might take pretty long to be deleted.\n\nDelete the code from WP-config.php file\n\nThe main location which asks the plugin to cache your pages is WP-config.php file. Open this file and locate\n

define(‘WP_CACHE’, true); //Added by WP-Cache Manager\ndefine( ‘WPCACHEHOME’, ‘/home4/kpsblogc/public_html/bblog/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/’ ); //Added by WP-Cache Manager
