WP Super Cache
[resolved] can super cache cause a redirect loop? (3 posts)

    I recently installed Super Cache on a wordpress site with good results. However a few days later one admin started having problems posting to the site. The issue was traced to a redirect loop. Disabling super cache solved the problem.

    I suppose I mis-configured super cache. Got any tips?

    OK, maybe the problem was not caused by Super Cache.. the issue is back, even thought the plugin is disabled. The site is here:
    http://fashioncow.com/.

    I am able to load it on my machine just fine, but other users report lots of connection issues.
    If I do a 'trace route', like with this tool:
    network-tools.com

    I now see FOUR servers in a row timing out, and the trace aborted. That indicates there is a problem. Maybe it is with the hosting company (go daddy). I just don't know how to trouble shoot this thing.

    OK, all you wordpress geeks who are wondering what's up with the mysterious redirects.. it turns out the issue is entirely Godaddy.

    I got them to admit such by this method: I disabled all plugins and permalinks. Then I switched to the default theme, 2011.

    The issue persisted and I called Godaddy (for the third time). Confronted with a completely generic WP install, they then tell me that they do have a redirect problem with their servers and that they are working on it. My advice is stay away from Godaddy. What a bunch of jerks.
