[resolved] [Plugin wp-super-cache]-Need a little more help before installing please. (8 posts)

    Hello,

    I need a little more help deciphering the installation instructions. I have a new installation of WP 2.3.1 on Bluehost. I can do basic code editing, but these first two steps already have me flummoxed:

    1. You must have mod mime, mod rewrite and fancy permalinks enabled. PHP safe mode should be disabled.

    Where do I find out if I have mod mime and mod rewrite enabled? I have the all-in-one SEO pack, does that suffice for fancy permalinks? Where do I disable PHP safe mode?

    2. ... Edit wp-config.php and make sure the WP_CACHE define is deleted. ...

    Can I see an example of what I'm looking for to delete, including any start and end tags?

    Thanks!

    Tom Wood

    Just install it, if you've never used wp-cache then you don't need to worry about the WP_CACHE define.
    If it doesn't work then delete wp-content/advanced-cache.php if it exists and edit wp-config.php and remove the line
    define( "WP_CACHE", false );

    Thanks donncha,

    For the mod mime, mod rewrite, and PHP safe mode part of my question, we're just stuck with what the host provides anyway? So just try it and see if it works? Or do you know something about Bluehost that answers that part of my question?

    Sorry to be dense, I'm just trying to understand.

    Tom

    EDIT: And how to I tell if it's working properly, or not?

    Yes, those instructions are primarily for people who can change their web server configuration. I know nothing about Bluehost specifically, so just try it!

    You'll see "super cache" at the end of the page source if it works.

    Thanks donncha,

    I sent a ticket in to Bluehost tech just to check, but I'll try it. I'm actually midstream moving the domain from Yahoo, so I'm still working on a not-yet-live site.

    One other question though if you don't mind. Will supercache cache all of the tag pages? That is, if I put the tagcloud on my front page, and someone clicks on a tag to get a list of posts that include that tag, can those pages be cached? And if so, does it automatically update those cached pages when a new post is made that includes existing or new tags? Same question for categories.

    Thanks!

    It'll cache the tag and category pages but won't update the cache for those pages when a new post is made. They'll expire eventually anyway.

    Thanks donncha,

    Here's the response from Bluehost:

    Mod_mime and mod_rewrite are pre-installed by us and Safe Mode for php is disabled by default, so you shouldn't have any problems using this addon.

    So this looks like a good to go!
