Upgrade: Delete wp-content/cache folder before upgrading? (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I currently have WPMu object cache enabled which writes to my wp-content/cache folder. I am preparing to upgrade from 1.3 to 1.5.1 and the instructions - which are from the stand-alone WP codex - say to delete this cache folder. Should I do this and just recreate it, or can I leave it?

    Thanks very much.

    Actually the object cache is no longer used in 1.5.1. Feel free to delete it.

    May want to search the forums as this has come up a couple of times recently along with suggestions and links if you want to continue using the cache.

    There is also a list of the object cache plugins to use in the README.txt as well.

    tdjcbe, thanks for the reply. I didn't know that 1.5.1 doesn't use object cache. I will remove the:

    define('ENABLE_CACHE', true);

    from my wp-config.php file then.

    Thanks!!

    See how it works for you without it, but many people have left that in their wp-config.php and just downloaded one of the object cache plugins. The Neo one I used was just one file to upload to wp-content and it was back working. Much faster admin now as well.
