W3 Total Cache
[resolved] W3 Total Cache and WordPress 3.0 issues (21 posts)

    I noticed that I get errors with the Browser cache option enabled and the object cache option slows down my site.

    Are there any specific compatibility issues with W3 total cache and WordPress 3.0?

    I've had problems with my server load and slow page loading since I upgraded to WP 3.0. Dreamhost suggests that there are some compatibility issues with W3 Total Cache and Wp 3.0

    Looking forward to a reply to this as I'm yet to upgrade to wordpress 3.0 'cause of fear of incompatibility with my important plug-ins

    Strictly...

    I removed W3 total cache and just went back to Super Cache. Total Cache worked great for WP 2.92, but it caused severe problems for me on WP 3.0.

    Supercache now has my site functioning properly, but it's not as fast by pingdom as w3total cache + wp 2.92

    I find it the other way around, upgraded to 3.0 and super cache gave me headaches. works fine now though with total cache. not sure .. what other plugins are you running?. I am not a coder so don't really know, I just play by feel.

    http://techxplosion.net is my site, is quite busy with half a dozen authors.

    I'm not sure if users realize that WP 3.0 was a significant change in how WordPress works under the hood. Anyway, v0.8.5.2 of W3TC was never flagged as compatible with WP 3.0, still many users upgraded anyway. If you wish to continue using W3TC, v0.9 (the development version) is quite stable, compatible with WP 3.0 and available here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/w3-total-cache/download/

    Fred,

    Dreamhost told me that there were known compatibility issues with W3 Total Cache. I was having problems with my website which I thought were more related to their hosting.

    Prior to WP3.0, W3TC and my site was flying.

    Now, I'm still having problems after following Dreamhost's advice to switch back to Supercache, but it is running somewhat better now.

    Maybe there's some issue with W3TC and Dreamhost's servers.

    I currently running on their VPS service and looking for a better hosting provider.

    Jmorrow.

    I ran WordPress 3.0 and W3 total cache perfectly fine on my websites. So there isn't an inherit problem with the plugin.

    maybe if you were a bit more specific about what your issues are someone here could help you, but as is, we have no idea what's wrong because you haven't told us anything in specific.

    Dear Fredericktownes,

    I am having the following issue - I have a WordPress 3.0 install with 4 simultaneous blogs running side by side. With the current version of W3TC when I activate the plugin under one blog, it get messed/deactivated in another. I can't activate it on all 4 blogs at same time.

    Does the v0.9 (the development version) allow me to do that?
    I would like to ask about this before installing it to my sites.

    Thank you very much for your attention, and of course for the wonderful plugin.

    Cospefogo.

    I recently upgraded to wp 3.0 and have had problems--- starting with an error messages saying firefox was attempting to redirect to another server when trying to go to my site. Host company "fixed" this and now the page that shows when going to my site is an OLD page that does not reflect my current theme and does not show any new posts. My pages do reflect my current theme, however if I make a change to any pages or posts, the changes are not reflected on my site.... My hosting company said was due to the w3 total cache plugin. I deactivated the plugin on my dashboard but still having problems. Anyone else having this problem and know if there is something ELSE going on besides the cache problem? thank you!

    That should work fine with v0.8.5.2, the issue is tht v0.8.5.2 is not fully compatible with WP 3, but everyone has upgraded anyway (which is obviously up to them, but not all plugins are compatible). Anyway try the development version.

    I deactivated the plugin on my dashboard but still having problems. Anyone else having this problem and know if there is something ELSE going on besides the cache problem?

    You also must be using the v0.8.5.2 release I assume?

    The development version does not sound like a public release version that has been tested thoroughly. Sorry. I have enough problems with my host bitching to me about high cpu usage. I can't risk playing around with a beta version on a live blog.

    SuperCache is compatible with WP3 and works. I'll leave it to someone else to do the testing and maybe revisit Total Cache at a later time.

    The development version is perfectly stable.

    If it's perfectly stable, why call it a development version? Why not release it as a current version? Are there some non technical reasons for not releasing it?

    I do not feel like it. There are numerous reasons including updating the FAQ and other user interface concerns.

    Hi Frederick,

    To manually upgrade to the development version of W3 Total Cache, should I first delete the existing W3 Total Cache folder on my server and then upload the new version or can I just upload the new version over the existing folder and overwrite the files? Does it matter?

    Thanks! And thanks for a great plug-in!

    Scott

    Delete and re-install is better.
