W3 Total Cache

    WP 3.4 allows to network activation for W3TC, while the previous WP versions did not. Should we use W3TC in network activated mode?

    Of course we will test it, and will share our learning. In the mean time would love to hear any feedback and experience if you explored this path.

    Unfortunately the ability to network activity the plugin does not make it work properly on the child sites. It doesn't seem to know it's been network activated and as a result it doesn't create sub-folders for each of the child sites.

    Yes i confirm

    First of all i would said that i don't know why you ask to 777 chmod wpcontent and wpcontent/plugins, my php configuration don"t allow that to me (security reasons and php5) the highest level i can is 755...

    (sorry for my bad english i'm french)

    I'm using WP 3.4 and after the plugin installation, i clicked on network activation, but i was redirect to a blank page :
    wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/pub/network_activation.php

    So i came back to my network admin, and i saw that the plugin was not actived over the network : i click on it and actived it.

    Ok, so i went to one of my child site and go to the plugin configuration. It told me to add some things into my .htaccess file.
    I tried to let the plugin to the the job itself (my htacces was 755 chmod before) but it do not work, so i enter myself those lines into my htacess, ok...

    Now i just tried to actived the page cache, i enter the new lines in my htacess, but the plugin said my htaccess said my htacces is not properly configurated... :-(

    Ok, so i tried antoher option : minify mode auto
    The result was :
    --------
    Minify is not active. To enable it, add the following rules into the server configuration file (/domains/wp-mastersite.com/public_html/wp-content/w3tc-wp-childsite.com/min/.htaccess) of the site . This can be done automatically, by clicking her
    -----
    ??? This folder simply do not exist !
    The only folder that exist is :
    /domains/wp-mastersite.com/public_html/wp-content/w3tc-wp-mastersite.com

    >> It appears that W3TCis completly lost... becasu it do not know my child site : wp-childsite.com

    Conclusion : I wonder why this plugin has been sais that it works under WP 3.4 and multisite configuration...

    :-(

    So true !
    When I tried to network activate this plugin, I lost all access to my dashboard...
    Pretty annoying.
