I did nothing to my magento and it was working well for like 3 weeks or so.
The 3 weeks was spent design the frontend and when the site was finally gonna go LIVE, i got this problem.
I enabled caching(as i was done with the designing and stuffs) for all the avaliable stuffs to cache and used the storewide discount feature before disaster strike.

After doodling around for quite a while, i realise that when i MANUALLY clear my cache in var/cache, i was able to load the site sucessfully for that one load. After that, var/cache is filled again and the next load(on any clicks on the site) actually gives me the above error again.
So i assume that it’s a problem with the caching system.
Is there anyone with the above error and any solutions? (searched on this site but did not get any results)
Or is there anyone who knows how to disable caching MANUALLY in Magento?
I was thinking that i should start debuging from this, but after exploring the mysql database and searching through core_config(and other datas), i couldn’t find the string to disable the cache manually. Any help?
Thanks! I am operating on 188.8.131.52 now as i have upgraded Magento successfully(i think) through SimpleScripts. This is the only problem brought through the upgrade.
