Cannot uninstall |

Hello @nek12,

To completely remove our plugin, you must first uninstall it via the website’s Dashboard. After this is done, make sure that all of the following directories are removed as well:

  • wp-content/plugins/sg-cachepress/
  • wp-content/uploads/siteground-optimizer-assets/
  • wp-content/cache/sgo-cache/

Additionally, purge any database records containing the term siteground_optimizer.

Our plugin also inserts .htaccess rules, each preceded by a comment indicating its origin from SiteGround Speed Optimizer. For example:

# HTTPS forced by SG-Optimizer
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP:X-Forwarded-Proto} !https
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule ^ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]</IfModule>

Make sure to remove these rules as well. Once the above has been completed, the plugin should no longer be listed in any capacity.

Best Regards,
Gergana Petrova
