W3 Total Cache - can't install (4 posts)

    I just installed W3 Total Cache and I have this message: It appears Page Cache URL rewriting is not working. If using apache, verify that the server configuration allows .htaccess or if using nginx verify all configuration files are included in the configuration.

    What does that mean? I'm in IE.

    This depends on your host a lot of the time.

    It has nothing to do with IE. I used to host with GoDaddy, I always had that message and could never get W3TC working.... doesn't mean it doesn't work, but I couldn't get it to.

    When I switched hosts, I could immediately get W3TC working....

    Thanks Rev Voodoo,

    Should I be considered about my load speed on http://www.hobbiesonabudget.com? I deactivated w3tc and am trying quick cache right now....

    There is a bit of lag before I see any content. After that, things load pretty quickly.

    If you can cut that load time a bit it would be great, but it's definitely not in the 'terrible' category.

    BUt speed is definitely an important consideration - especially if you're a business, every little thing you can do helps!

    There are many considerations to speed aside from caching. Your host plays a huge part of that, with some hosts (especially on shared hosting) you can only do so much. You have no control over your actual server.

    Other things include plugin usage, the theme, and optimisation thereof
