I often get mails when people face problems while updating their themes or WordPress. One thing common among all these users is they are using WP super cache plugin.
WP super cache is a great plugin to boost your site’s performance and also helps in getting a good page rank. It helps to improve your page rank since search engines like google are concerned about loading speed.
However, some people using WP super cache may face some problems updating their themes or WordPress. It is very simple to avoid this problem. Clear cache and deactivate this plugin before updating. You can activate the plugin after successfully updating the theme or WordPress.
If you don’t know how to clear the cache then follow these instructions:
- In your WordPress admin panel expand the Settings tab.
- Click on WP super cache
- Click on Delete cache (under the Cache content heading).
Also, it is always a good practice to deactivate all plugins before updating.
