    Hi,

    I just update to VersiĆ³n 0.9.2.4 of W3 Total Cache and get this error in the dashboard.

    It appears Page Cache URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.

    It appears Minify URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.

    I had no error before the update, can someone please help in how to fix it ?

    Thanks.

    Seems to have same errors. On each settings page i see two error "banners" on page top:

    "It appears Page Cache URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration."
    and
    "It appears Minify URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration."

    But minify and page cache works as expected. htaccess configured exactly as given on Install page. The "Verify rewrite rules" checkbox disables these error messages.

    WordPress installed into separate directory. On other site with same hosting, where WordPress installed into root directory i dont see any errors.

    so you think it's just a problem of warnings?

    In my case it's only false error messages.

    you're right. But this problem should be fixed by the developer. tonight is the version 0.9.2.4 has been released, but the problem remained.

    i change page cache to disk:basic

    Got the same issue; as Aminzayer indicates (thanks for the tip!) switching from disk-enhanced to disk-basic gets rid of the error message. In fact, I got the same error message also for the minify function; I had to set URL rewrite to "off" for the error messages to disappear.

    I'm a bit stumped where this one comes from... Perhaps there's something amiss with condition detection. We'll see, the developer is really good about figuring stuff out really quick, so let's sit back with the temporary workaround settings.

    Same here. But i think these are false positives. The pcache and minify works fine.

    Having the same problem here. I don't know how it is detecting whether url rewriting is working or not as I don't see any HTTP requests to /wp-content/w3tc*

    still many bugs in this plugin. According to my point of view, the developer wanted to integrate too many functions.

    same problem is facing by me..when Page cache set to "Disk:basic" it works fine.
    but as per my information its better to set "Disk :Enhanced" for releiving server load.

    Still i'm confuse about the cause for that...
    Please anyone know the reason..?

    The development version has a fix for this issue. What W3TC is, is a GUI for web performance optimization. It's an attempt to start with the advanced interface of that GUI to invite users of all kinds to use features so those features actually get tested instead of making a magical plugin that tunes websites according to what I imagine, instead of what is practical. The latest releases made changes to caching policies for pages to be more consistent with WP's native behavior and allow for 301 redirects to work natively as well. Unfortunately that feature had bugs.

    Thanks, Frederick. It's better to try and occasionally err on the way to improvement than to sit back and b*tch about the status quo... Still, I'm a little bit intrigued by the idea that there's at least some tension between what you call "WP's native behavior" and what I'd call "optimization".

    Obviously there's stuff far outside WP's grasp (i.e. the rest running on the servers) but it's a bit of a troubling realization that performance is treated almost as an afterthought on self-hosted WP sites. It'd be nice if there were an extra quality label available for plugins and themes out there - somewhat like the energy impact label on electric household items - so as to point out the severity of the performance hit resulting from installing and using a given plugin and/or bad known interactions ("bad combos") with other plugins. I guess that's a noble pipe dream, though.

    Of course, you as the developer of W3TC are just looking at the mess, and your effort in bumping up performance for us poor souls is still enormously appreciated. But as undoubtedly frustrating as it is to read variations of "your plugin doesn't work" you have at least my word appreciating your effort, Frederick.

    So: thanks again.

    For all who have the same or similar problem, see my post about automatic minifying errors:
    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-w3-total-cache-important-parsing-found-with-automatic-minify
    (btw, I meant to say *Important* parsing error found with automatic minify)
    In the minifying process, incorrect .js code was generated. You'll see what I mean in my post. Good luck!

    I am getting similar kind of error "It appears Minify URL rewriting is not working" in my WordPress Tutorials blog. What is the actual reason for it.

    Are there any errors in your web server error log?
