Hi,

I have had no luck.  How do I clear the cache in wordpress?  I tried deleting the cached files but nothing worked.

I have attached the code for the tpl page in the cache folder where the problem is.
problempage.php
Hi there,

I don't believe that the issues is with the cache... there is something else going on here.
Could you please explain step by step how you migrated the Wordpress site to the staging environment?

I migrated quite the amount of Wordpress sites, so hopefully I might be able to spot something.

Kind Regards,

Check the file permissions on your live server. This could be done via FTP. All involved files should be on 755 to be accessible to your wordpress site.

Use Filezilla: navigate to the directory where your wp is installed and make a right click on it.
Then select File Permissions on the bottom. Set 755 in the dialogue and select for "apply for all subdirectories and files" -> Ok, and you're done.

Then check if your installation works again.
Hi, tried the solution by mcnute but had no luck.  What I did to migrate to the staging environment was as follows:

-  Copied database from local to staging environment.  Staging environment had wordpress installed by default originally from hostgator, it had wp super cache plugin installed by default.
-  Then copied theme files, plugins and uploads.

Could it be the wp super cache plugin affecting things? I deleted it recently after the site was running and been trying to debug.

Yes now it does but previously it didnt, had wp super cache files there.  Should I re-upload theme, baffled by this problem.  Everytime i delete the page generated in cache folder, when i refresh the site, the page comes back in the cache folder and error still there.

What could be the best solution to this problem?

Hi Guys,

Thinking out the box and commented out code line by line and the site is back running but now lost my home page slider.

Commenting out code in the ait-cache folder, trouble is some elements have stopped working now.

Will have a play, any advice will much appreciated.
