    Dear Support,

    I had setup a search entry which was working find, lookng for keywords in custom fields and pages.
    It was all fine until I tried to install a cache plugin.
    But then even though I have removed the cache plugin the search bar hangs and waits forever, without the capability to search.

    The cache plugin has been fully removed now.
    But the problem persists.

    I have removed all cache files.
    I have removed the asp completely, reinstalled it, cleared all the config and created a new search and it’s still blocked.

    The weirdest thing is that I have duplicated the entire site on a test site on a local server, and it works fine on the mirror, while it just hangs on the original site.

    Is there any file or database entry I should look for to try fixing this ?

    Best Regards,
    François

    Hi,

    Your browser might be still persising on the incorrect cached files. Clearing the browser cache is likely going to resolve the issue.

    If you are using CDN like Cloudflare, that could also explain it if that layer of page cache is also enabled.

    Can you please check if the wp-content/cache folder and ALL of it’s subderectories are writeable? Make sure the permissions are set to 0755 or 0777 on that folder and all of the subfolders.
    This is the only other thing I can think of, that would explain the issue.

    Great 🙂

    At least it’s resolved now. You are very likely correct, WordPress tries to change the cache folder permissions initially, but if the PHP user does not share ownership, it’s not able to. It will be fine now.
