W3 Total Cache
Manual install (7 posts)

    I have made many attempts to install this using the instructions provided and cannot get this plugin to activate. I get no errors, it just will not activate. I used older versions just fine. Looking at the manual instructions I cannot figure out how to install this either.

    "Or you can unzip and FTP upload the plugin to your plugins directory (wp-content/plugins/). In either case, when done wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/ should exist."

    This doesn't help much.

    To add to this issue. I tried installing this on a different domain on the same server. Same issue, I cannot get the plugin to activate. No errors on install, no error on trying to activate. It just won't activate. I used version 0.8.5.2 for a while and no issues whatsoever.

    I think this post would be helpful in addition to trying the development version of the plugin: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-w3-total-cache-500-internal-server-error?replies=22#post-1654644

    I get no errors, I just cannot activate the plugin. I did actually get this installed on another domain on the same server so it's not sever specific. It may be another plugin conflict. I'll send you an email.

    I got this installed after deactivating a 5 star review plugin.

    Did you contact the author about the issue? What plugin is that specifically? Some have options to improve compatibility with caching.
