    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    /var/www/vhosts/airband.com/httpdocs/wp-content/w3tc/dbcache could not be created, please run following command:
    chmod 777 /var/www/vhosts/xxx.com/httpdocs/wp-content/w3tc

    whats your question?
    the plugin tells you what to do to fix the problem:

    run following command:
    chmod 777 /var/www/vhosts/xxx.com/httpdocs/wp-content/w3tc

    thats refering to a ssh console. if you are using an ftp client, set the permissions of that folder to 777

    @cmttampa make sense? If not, call your host for support with this error message.

    I get the same error on a freshly installed machine. When I use SSH to got the server and run the chmod it does it fine but every time I re-activate the plugin it then deleted the w3tc directory

    I've tried re-creating the w3tc directory and also the dbcache directory by hand, chmod'ing it to 777 and then re-activating but every time it just deleted the directory.

    Any ideas?

    I didn't really follow what was said there. If you've got a good working installation deactivating and re-activating the plugin should work without error.
