[resolved] Home page cache glitch (9 posts)

    I've been using this plug in for over a year and have had no problems. But now I'm having a curious problem that I'm having trouble tracking down.

    The home page on my site intermittently serves up gibberish, the rest of the site seems to be unaffected, it is just the homepage. When it is doing this, Safari it will send a downloadable a file to my downloads folder filled with a sort of "code". Firefox will just display the page (screen grab).

    Sample from Safari download page

    Disabling or resting the cache has solved the problem, but it returns in a day or so.

    I though t it was gzip glitch, turned of all compression but it has had no effect.

    Currently I'm running the homepage cache-less to see if it helps or crops up anywhere else.

    is it possibly an .htaccess issue?

    Are there errors in your error log at the time of these occurrences?

    I didn't think to look at the time. However, I turned off the minifying and that seemed to resolve the problem.

    I see, are you willing to test again with the latest release by chance?

    Sure. I'm running 0.9.2.3 right now, I'll try again with the next update.

    Yeah, minify is working fine following the latest upgrade.

    Thanks for following up!

    I'm actually still seeing this one and I'm on 0.9.2.4. Same details as Jonathan described. And the 'download' that starts being served up when the home page is accessed is either the gibberish file, or is just a download of the homepage html code. Removing and then re-adding the W3PC code from .htaccess fixed things a few days ago, but came back today. Remove/re-add did the trick again. But I'd definitely like to know why this is happening. Running on WP 3.2.1.

    That means that something else is starting the compression for the page in addition to W3TC. Ask your host to help you troubleshoot.
