W3 Total Cache
[resolved] Version 0.9.2.7 does not work with a cPanel site or a site powered by CloudFlare (3 posts)

    After using the plugin on two sites, I can testify that the new version does not work in two separate situations:

    1: Any site using cPanel and WHM as a backend: The new version of W3C Total Cache will try to overwrite the root index.php file upon installation with 777 permissions (all users have full read/write/execute permissions.) This is a common website attack tactic and cPanel/WHM will block the website from running the insecure web page and displays a 500 Internal Server error. Uninstalling W3C Total Cache will not help: the index.php file will still have the 777 permissions. As a workaround, you can just reset the permissions on the file to 400.

    2: Any site using CloudFlare: CloudFlare is a reverse proxy optimizer that W3C Total Cache can integrate with. The new version's integration does not work. I receive error messages about connection problems when trying to activate this feature. Also, all of my CSS and HTML formatting is messed up. Disabling the CloudFlare feature does not work. I had to disable the plugin entirely.

    I don't even know if the new version fixed the problem in 0.9.2.6 with backup plugins like BackupBuddy not working with this plugin.

    The new new 0.9.2.8 version fixed this specific problem, but introduced another blocking AJAX calls.
