W3 Total Cache
[resolved] 404 Errors after installing on WordPress Multisite (2 posts)

    We are currently developing a site here:
    http://174.120.82.66/~bgcgwweb/

    All was working fine until we tried to install and configure W3 Total Cache. After install, only the homepage would work. All internal links would give a 404 error. The same type of issue occurred when accessing WordPress admin where the main site would load, but no subsite admin pages would load.

    We've followed all directions to uninstall W3 Total Cache, including removing extra files from /wp-content, removing all W3 related entries in .htaccess, and also resaving permalinks, but have had no success thus far.

    Has anyone else had this issue with WordPress Multisite? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated as this site is for the Boys and Girls Club and we are looking to launch shortly.

    Thanks!

    And I soon as I say that, I think I found the issue.

    For anyone running WordPress Multisite, your .htaccess file gets VERY screwy after installing/uninstalling W3 Total Cache.

    To fix the 404 error issue, I went back into the NETWORK ADMIN area of WordPress Admin (for Super Admins), and under Settings -> Network Setup, I copied the .htaccess entries they had there in the 2nd box into my .htaccess file on my server. Doing this final step seems to resolve the uninstall issues with W3 Total Cache on a Multisite install.

    Hope this helps anyone else that might have the same issue.
