Error with Rewrite Code in htaccess? (4 posts)

    I have begun to have some issues over the past week with the site not loading or not loading properly (mainly in Chrome and Firefox), as well as a time when the permalink structure reset to the WordPress default, and a couple of times when I've been logged out of the WordPress back-end when making edits.

    My web host said that it it was most likely an error with a mis-configured re-write rule in the .htaccess file. I can't see anything wrong (but am not sure whether I would know if I saw it...)

    The only times I find rewrite mentioned in htaccess are pasted below.

    Do you think this is what the problem is, or something else?

    Thanks

    To get started:
    Try to disable the W3 Total cache plugin. Does your site fine then?

    Thanks for reply
    Should have said. I disabled the plugin but the code relating to W3TC is still in .htaccess after it's been deleted...

    Remove everything from the htaccess file except this:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>
    # END WordPress

    just to see if you get the same errors and site problems.
    You can also disable the permalinks completely for testing purpose.
