Is it possible to disable cache from the database? No admin access (buttons don’t work due to caching issue).

Which tables / entries are we looking for?

Site is caught looking for cache that doesn’t exist (deleted var, doesn’t matter, it will simply rebuild it).  Need to disable cache.

Turns out this was down to Fooman_Speedster.

For future reference:

We simply removed /app/etc/modules/Fooman_Speedster.xml and we were able to get the admin buttons back up, to clear the cache out.

Other things to try for other peeps looking in include:

Rename /var/ directory

Rename /app/etc/use_cache.ser

As a temp measure to get your site looking normal (if above fixes don’t work).
Grab:

/app/design/frontend/default/YOUR_TEMPLATE/template/page/html/head.phtml

and hard code in your js / css:

This is an example TEMPORARY front end fix, until you find a solution:
REplace YOUR_TEMPLATE with you guessed it your template name.
