I don't know much about how super cache works, but I see that at the very least, I can find most of the pages of my site in the wp-content/cache/supercache folder. Now, if WordPress cannot connect to the database due to the MySQL server being down (as is the case right now), should it be showing an error message or should it be showing the cached pages?
I would think that it should work regardless of whether the connection can be made or not. Is there an option or a flag that I am missing?
Also, it looks like the main page of the site is not cached, while everything else is. Is there any way to deal with that? Obviously I can't do anything about that right now, since the database is down, but for the future?
