Canonical error when W3 Total Cache enabled (1 post)

    I know I made a configuration error with W3 Total Cache and that it is not a W3 bug or issue, I love how much this plugin speeds everything up. My problem is I ran into a Canonical issue when I ran some standard checks after finishing W3 setup. When W3 is enabled http://www.zypath.com doesn't work it just gives some garbage (a few lines of raw html), zypath.com runs like a champ. When I disable W3 and reboot HTML, MySQl and PHP http://www.zypath.com resolves to zypath.com in the browser whithout a problem. I notice the problem with Firefox and Safari browsers, chrome seems to work no matter what. I am clearing all cookies and testing with other devices such as a kindle and the problem is repeatable. So I know I did something stupid...

    Everything in DNS point to zypath.com, there is 'A' a record pointing zypath.com to an IP address and a CNAME pointing http://www.zypath.com to zypath.com. I did try to use virtual host on Apache2 but this caused access forbidden errors (even though I did add the access to the directory in the virtual hosts settings). Instead of adding too many variables I went back to looking at W3 (and stop playing with virtual hosts in apache2) and could not figure out why it made this stop working.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
