Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » _old being added to Page cache files.

  • Resolved basvandijkk


    I’m running W3 Total Cache i.c.w. our Nginx site. I’m experiencing the problem of W3 total cache adding _old to every page cache file. I’ve searched through the problem but can’t seem to find the cause to this problem. I think it is a real problem since the nginx.conf that is being genereted by W3 doesn’t include _old within the try_files block.

    I hope someone can help me with this problem!

    @gidomanders Beste Guido, heb jij mijn laatste reactie nog gezien?

    _old files are created when the cache is purged.
    It’s normal to have the _old files. If you always have only _old files – that’s a sign something purges cache all the time. Like the theme or some plugin.

    @vmarko Thanks for your reaction. I already figured that, but couldn’t figure out what was causing it. I replaced it with WP Super Cache since we’ve always used W3 and Super cache for our clients.

    But anyway thanks for all the support.
