[Plugin: W3 Total Cache] Won't cache pages and database :( (5 posts)

    First of all, the plugin is awesome, thanks for creating it. It has speeded up my super-slow site on a not-so-fast server from F to D on YSlow and I thought that would be impossible. I had two suspensions due to high load this month and

    Now, I have realised that it does not actually cache the pages and the database; and that gzip does not seem to work, either. I assume that would make things work even better. I also tried with memcached, but I got an error, mentioning the port.

    I can provide my php info file (from what I can seen memcache and gzip are enabled) and the debug information, if that helps. I just don't want to ask the hosting company anything before I know what to ask them.

    If this matters:
    - I have disabled two pages because they're a product of integration between WordPress and Gallery2, via WPG2.

    - My hosting company doesn't use cpanel based hosting.

    - I chmod'ed subdirectories inside wp-content/w3tc to 777. I can put it back to 755 if that's not a good idea.

    And just to make sure: I tested all of this as a logged-out user.

    Put it back to 755 once the plugin is installed.

    It's best to submit a bug submission report so I can see your settings, it's difficult to imagine what the issue is. It's possible you could have some .htaccess settings interferring with things, but the bug submission report is the most useful way for me to find out.

    Are you implying that I should have created the directory myself before I installed the plugin? Seems my routine is wrong. I'll submit the report ASAP.

    And wow, this is the kind of support I have seen only in dreams and in advertisements, impressed!

    Also, would the expire headers in .htaccess be an issue? They apparently don't work well either. And that's the only thing I have there next to WP's normal rules.

    wp-content exists by definition in any WordPress installation. It's probably best to deactivate and reactivate the plugin and make sure that it's doing so without error before testing further.
