Quick Cache (Speed Without Compromise)
[Plugin: Quick Cache ( A WP Super Cache Alternative )] Funny permissions (3 posts)

    Things like this

    Permissions: Please check permissions on wp-config.php. Quick Cache needs write-access to this file. Permissions need to be 755 or higher.

    Permissions: Please check permissions on wp-content. Quick Cache needs write-access to this directory. Permissions need to be 755 or higher.

    are really a pain in the neck. These messages even appear when everything is set as required. The disappear only when I CHOWN everything to PHP-User (ie the server) which then in turn is double work if I want to change something in wp-content because I have to change the CHOWN settings again. Why doesn't this thing work like everything else in wp-universe?

    Agreed! Not working well on this issue.

    Agreed. AFAIK Quick Cache needs access to wp-config.php to insert this line:

    define( 'WP_CACHE', true );

    And it needs access to wp-content to create and use wp-content/cache.

    On my new host, Quick Cache gives me an error unless I 777 these files / folders. I've even inserted the WP_CACHE line myself in wp-config.php, created wp-content/cache and given that folder 777. I've managed to turn Quick Cache on, but going by the stated tests (logging out, checking the footer of the source for QC comments), it's not working.

    It's still giving me the above "errors". Is there something else it needs apart from the WP_CACHE line and access to wp-content/cache?

    There's no way I'm setting wp-config.php (or anything else) to 777. Maybe time to switch to another plugin?
