[Plugin: WP Super Cache] MIME-type Related Error? (4 posts)

    Hello all,
    I'm currently running WP 2.6 and have installed a fresh copy of WP-Super Cache. After having to manually create the "supercache" directory under wp-content/cache, the pages started being super cached using the gzip compression; however, this didn't work on Internet Explorer. Install, both IE 6 and 7 asked me to download the file rather than displaying it as with Safari and Firefox.

    I've searched all over the Internet for solutions, all of which either prevented my site from being loaded or just didn't resolve the issue. I'm wondering if there's something I can change in my .htaccess to "tell" IE to properly interpret the gz file extension. If so, exactly what should the code be?

    My site is: http://www.rishi-kumar.com

    Thanks!

    Is there a .htaccess file in your wp-content/cache/ folder?
    It should contain the following 2 lines. I don't know why it wasn't created if not there.

    AddEncoding x-gzip .gz
    AddType text/html .gz

    Yep, that file is there.

    I honestly don't know why it's not working then. You should probably just switch off the super cache then. Unless your site is very very popular you won't notice any real speed difference.
