Support » Plugin: W3 Total Cache » Error: Configuration file could not be read or doesn't exist

  • Hi!

    I just installed W3TC and had to do some changes manually in htaccess and had to copy advanced-cache.php to wp-content + creating some folders for the plugin. I did all the things W§TC told me in the control panel. However, there is still one error I get and I can’t fix it.

    Getting this:

    W3 Total Cache: Default settings are in use. The configuration file could not be read or doesn’t exist. Please save the settings to create the file.

    Below this error is the message:
    The plugin is currently enabled in community edge mode.

    Clicking the “Save Settings” button on the error message doesn’t fix the problem, it does nothing!

    What do I have to do now? Any suggestions?

  • This happened to me as well a few days ago. I had to go to the Main Network panel and enable this option ‘Use single network configuration file for all sites.’ in ‘Performance -> General Settings -> Miscelaneous’.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks for your feedback!

    What version of WT3TC are you using? I don’t have this option in my version and I am using the current.

    I also do not have this option for “Use single network configuration file for all sites”. I’m using w3-total-cache.0.9.4.1 on WordPress 4.3

    Hi all, i also faced the same problem recently. And just like @mattmaldre, i also didn’t have this “Use single network configuration file for all sites” option.

    But instead you can solve this by clicking: ‘Performance -> General Settings -> Import / Export Settings -> Restore Default Settings

    Hope this helps you too 🙂

    thank you 4lvin. it helped.

    ‘Use single network configuration file for all sites’ was already checked for me. Does anyone have any other solutions?

    He seguido las indicaciones de 4lvin y ha funcionado correctamente.
    Gracias 4lvin!

    Hi, this also occurs when setting defaults. The easiest solution I found was to simply revert from using default settings; i.e. simply make a change to any setting and click save.

    Hi have the same problem with version 0.9.5.1 and WP version 4.6.1.

    Previous answers of this thread did not help.

    Any clue?
