@ Frederick Townes-
Your generosity in responding so promptly to the various inquiries about W3TC is impressive and surely appreciated by all, but I would like to respectfully suggest that you could save yourself and the users of this fabulous plugin LOTS of time by providing better basic documentation and installation instructions.
Having successfully setup W3TC with self-hosted CDN on 2 sites using WP 3.0 Multisite & Domain Mapping, clearly I have aptitude for this sort of thing, but very little experience with web/tech issues.
I had to consult various third party guides, with often conflicting information, for initial set-up, but there is lots of information out there about this.
Information about setting up self-hosted CDN was harder to find, and information about setting up self hosted CDN + multisite + domain mapping was like looking for a needle in a haystack.
It would be a huge help and time-saver for everyone to have a basic guide for non web-tech-heads that includes:
> Gathering information about your server
> Setting up self-hosted CDN
(Particularly the configuration panel- it took me forever to determine the correct information for the various fields, especially for FTP path, which in my case needed to be left blank in order to work!)
> Gathering information about your host/server
> Basic setup for various server/host types
> Basic setup - No CDN
> Basic setup - Self-hosted CDN
> How to create a subdomain in cPanel
> How to create an FTP account in cPanel
> NOT to use network activation in multisite
> Must be activated and configured on ALL sites!
I'll bet that for every hour you might spend pulling all this information together in one place you will save yourself and your users multiple hours of time and effort!
