[Plugin: W3 Total Cache] Content Encoding Error (6 posts)

    Hi.

    I would love to use this plugin, however when I enable it, it breaks all my pages and displays a bunch of garbage characters.

    I am on a shared host. What modules need to be installed in order for this to work? I tried all the compression options, gzip, deflate, gzip and deflate. none of them work.

    thanks

    If I enable debugging, this is what is shown in the source code. I removed my domain name from the output below.

    Now my site is completely broken even after disabling and uninstalling the entire plugin.

    Safari can’t open the page “http://mydomain.com/blog”. The error is: “cannot decode raw data” (NSURLErrorDomain:-1015)

    All I did was install w3 total cache, enable it, realize it doesn't work, and disabled and removed it.

    I replaced my actual domain in the error above with a fake one as to not publicize my site

    Disablee HTTP compression on the page cache settings tab and see if that resolves the issue. If it does then, submit a bug submission form from the support tab of the plugin.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Well after completely removing it and reinstalling it, my pages are now loading, but they are not being compressed with gzip at all.

    in fact, my yslow and pagespeed scores got worse after turning on the plugin.

    All tests that I run either through gtmetrix.com and http://www.gidnetwork.com/tools/gzip-test.php indicate gzip compression is NOT enabled.

    In fact, even caching appears to not be working according to the debug output. I am testing from a different browser where I am NOT logged in at all.

    Is there something Im missing? I haven't messed with the settings and left them at default for now.

    Here is the new debug information.

    I don't know if you're missing anything. Submit a bug submission from the support tab of the plugin.
