wordpress migration and caching issue

Hi Guys,

As some of you have helped on this issue i still seem to be having a problem

 i thought have done everything i thought by the book in terms of migrating the site it hasnt completely migrated, the way i was hoping

look at the homepage of www.bodyfirstnutrition.ie and then look at homepage of http://www.bodyfirst.ie 

look at menu and look where about is on both sites, then if you look at the about pages and click on "protein" and then do it on other site, so i have to keep referencing www.bodyfirstnutrition.ie

the experts here reckon its a caching issue i have tried a couple of the caching plugins to empty the cache but it hasnt helped?

Thank you in advance

When I go to this page:

... I am able to find a link to protein here (an unstyled page)

When I go to this page:

... I do not see any sidebar like I see on bodyfirst.ie/about1

There are no client-side cacheing issues, since I have not visited these pages in this browser before now.  Is it possible that the about and about1 pages are somehow getting confused?

@julianh you will notice that question is about not being able to view www.bodyfirstnutrition.ie from anywhere outside Ireland

Sorry, I don't know what to tell you.  It looks like the directory structure may be confused, but I can't diagnose it from here.  I still see that in some of the links we're looking at about and others are looking at about1.

about !== about1

if i gave you access would you be able to diagnose?

If you could that would be great?
dude... you didn't read my previous comment, did you? remember, the one that you accepted as an answer?

Apart from recreating the cache again, you will first need to delete the disk cache, i.e. the extra directory structures that was created using the cache at the first place. Your caching plugin is FUBAR, or your setting is (was) wrong; I weigh the latter since I'm using the same plugin + amazonAws subscription and I don't have problem with it.

Sorry Meb...

ok, i am a bit of a pleb, I am not too familiar with wordpress...

So basically you are telling me the caching plugin i have doesnt work (user error ie me) so how do i use it correctly and how do i delete the directory structures? (is this done when i delete the cache?)
Well, something went wrong, somewhere.

I would go to the filemanager in your cPanel and first make a backup. Save the backup somewhere, i.e. on a separate folder that you know you will not delete it by accident. Oh, and by backup I meant FULL backup, not just your files, but include the database and whatnot as well.

One can never have too much of backup sets.

Disable the caching plugin, export the settings or take note of it.

If you want, you can delete the plugin, just in case.

Go to your file manager of choice, and delete every folder that didn't come with a fresh install of Wordpress. The following are the ones that you MUST NOT DELETE:


Take good considerations of the uploaded media folder, you might or might not placed it somewhere else.

Done? Now, check your site, go through the links and navigations.

If everything checks out, go make another backup, name it something like 'after cleanup'.

Go to your dashboard, install the W3C plugin.

Read the following documentation about W3C Cache Plugin & WooThemes issue: http://docs.woothemes.com/document/configuring-caching-plugins/

Configure your caching plugin, let it grinds the gears and create fresh cache of your site. Sit back, go make a cup of coffee. I like mine with extra strong, double cream and double sugar please :-)

Go back to your site, click away like a mad man, and if checks out, guess what: make another backup (yes, I'm serious).

You're done. for now.
