Your Cache Directory Did not Exist and Couldn’t be Created by the Web Server

Web bloggers often use WordPress plugin WP Super Cache, which is a popular cache plugin for fast web page loading. However, in some cases we might got the following error about the WP Super Cache plugin:

Error: Your cache directory (xxx/xxx/xxx/wp-content) did not exist and couldn’t be created by the web server. Check xxx/xxx/xxx/wp-content permissions.

The caused reason is because we moved our blog website to another folder, or another hosting server such as upgrading hosting plan, or even websites are moved to another hosting company, which caused the cache directory is changed.
